Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra

Musicians

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:

“The work of the Archangel Michael”: Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony: March 26, 2016

March 26, 2016 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

Hector Berlioz was so entranced by the heavenly slow movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 that he claimed it had to have been written by the Archangel Michael and not by a mere mortal. This lyrical symphony is balanced by the high-spirited Rossiniana by Ottorino Respighi, a suite for large orchestra based on short piano pieces by Gioachino Rossini. The soloist for this concert will be Evan Hjort, winner of the orchestra's 2015 Don Bushell Competition, in a performance of Karol Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No. 2, Op. 61.

Venue: Benaroya Hall
Concert Date: 26 March 2016
Concert Time: 2:00 PM

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.
