A Member Owned Orchestra

A true Puget Sound tradition, the Seattle Philharmonic is an orchestra of community members who share a passion for music. As a member-run organization, the Phil has the special opportunity to offer unique programming and to share in the northwest community: involving local soloists, artists and Washington notables.

A successful community orchestra reflects the community that it serves. Since the orchestra’s inception, Seattle Philharmonic members have represented all walks of life, bringing a broad demographic of social, economic and professional backgrounds to the organization. Teachers share melodies with doctors, office managers harmonize with engineers, and students sit side by side with retirees.

The Phil’s musicians also participates in several outreach programs, helping the community’s youth, schools and those with little access to classical music to share in concerts and musical programs.
