Upcoming Concert:

Three Decades, Five Treasures: January 27, 2018

January 27, 2018 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

The first three decades of the 20th century yielded numerous musical riches. The Philharmonic will present one of the most enduring of these, Respighi's The Pines of Rome, as the climax to a concert featuring five of the century's most distinctive composers from five different countries. The program will include a screening of René Clair's delightful surrealist film Entr'acte, with Erik Satie's original music performed live by the Philharmonic. A folksong arrangement by Percy Grainger, a symphonic poem by the 19-year-old Dimitri Mitropoulos (later known as one of the 20th century's most important conductors), and two haunting rarities for cello and orchestra by Sibelius with soloist Mara Finkelstein round out this unique program.

Benaroya Hall

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.

Parking Information is available here.
