Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra


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.

Upcoming Concert:

“On the wings of the wind”: Borodin’s “Prince Igor”

June 8, 2019 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

The Philharmonic's season closes with music from the 19th and 20th centuries. One of Johannes Brahms' earliest attempts at symphonic writing, the Serenade No. 2 is a lush work boasting some of its composer's most beguiling melodies and a unique orchestration (no violins!). Luciano Berio's Corale and Frank Martin's Ballade are both arresting and intriguing concertos in miniature, and will feature, respectively, Philharmonic Concertmaster Luke Fitzpatrick and Principal Flute, Sandra Saathoff. The concert concludes with music from Alexander Borodin's opera Prince Igor: the Overture and the ever-popular Polovtsian Dances.

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.
