Mateusz Wolski is perhaps best known as the lead violinist and concertmaster of the Spokane Symphony — he’s the guy who the entire orchestra tunes to before every performance — but he’ll be wearing even more hats during a new variety show he’s hosting this weekend. “The ‘M’ Show” is being described as having the vibe of a late-night comedy show, with comic sketches and routines, both live and filmed, alongside a program of classical music selections performed by Wolski and an ensemble of some of his symphony colleagues. And don’t be surprised if Wolski’s penchant auto racing is involved in some way. A second ‘M’ Show has already been scheduled for May.
Fri, Jan. 19 and Sat, Jan. 20 at 8 pm • $36-$54 • Washington Cracker Co. Building • 304 W. Pacific • spokanesymphony.org • 624-1200
