The Bushell Concerto Competition is named in honor of the SPO’s first Music Director, Don Bushell, who started this annual event in 1946 to provide a performance opportunity for aspiring musicians. Every year since, this prestigious competition has provided professional development and an exclusive concert performance opportunity for outstanding area soloists.
Benaroya Hall houses two performance halls in a complex that is thoroughly integrated into downtown Seattle. Occupying an entire city block at the very core of the city, the development celebrates the vital role of performance events while maintaining the continuity of commercial life along one avenue and providing a much-needed public space, in the form of a terraced garden, along another.
