Seattle Native Wins Grammy

Composer Mateo Messina has been honored for his score in the movie Juno; the West Seattle native won the grammy for "Best Compilation Soundtrack." According to his publicists, Messina's work varies from writing movie and television soundtracks to creating pieces for live concerts.
Messina is the founder and president of the Symphony Guild, a local organization which produces an annual concert to benefit uncompensated care at Seattle Children's Hospital. Though Messina now resides in Hollywood, he frequently returns to Seattle to perform for children at the hospital, as well as to write and produce the annual concert. This year's performance, Symphony of the Superhero, is scheduled to take place in November at Benaroya Hall.
