Seattle – Comedy icon Will Ferrell is coming to the Moore Theater in Seattle on February 12, 2018 for a very special evening to benefit the charity Cancer for College.
The event is billed as “One Classy Night Seattle” and features Ferrell and a panel of acclaimed musicians including singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile along with a pair of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers in guitarist Mike McCready of Pearl Jam and drummer Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers. The audience will be invited to sit in on the discussion as the super group chats about the music that has influenced their lives and some of their favorite musical memories from throughout their storied careers. The evening will conclude with a very special performance as the musicians jam on their favorite songs for an incredible once in a lifetime experience.
“As most of you know, I’m a classically trained musician with my specialty being both the oboe and the pan flute, said Ferrell. “I’m sure those guys are going to feel a little intimidated being around someone with my musical background. Honestly, it’s really cool to share the stage with these incredibly talented musicians who are coming out to support a great cause in Cancer for College. This organization provides college scholarships and professional mentoring services to low income, high achieving cancer survivors and the money raised through this event will benefit survivors from the Pacific Northwest. This year marks the organization’s 25th anniversary and we are doing some special events around the country to raise money and awareness for the cause.”
