For the fourteenth year Grammy Award winning composer and Seattle native Mateo Messina has composed a world premiere symphony to benefit uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital.  ‘The Last Wonder of the World” will feature John Ondrasik of Five For Fighting, South Africa’s Civil Twilight and local gal Vicci Martinez who was a finalist on NBC’s “The Voice“.

You have to respect a man who has given up his time and talent for fourteen years to help children who’s families don’t have the money to afford the care they need.  Even more impressively, with this years proceeds, Mateo’s Symphony Guild will have raised over $1 million for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital.  This man is someone we should truly get behind!  One little fact about Mateo that you might be interested in… Mateo scored the film Juno for Jason Reitman, an effort that earned him a Grammy.
