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:

“Heirs and Rebels”: Vaughan Williams and Holst

May 30, 2015 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

Musical BFF's Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gustav Holst are united in an exciting season finale. Acknowledged as his first true masterpiece, Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is an homage to the English church music that the composer so deeply loved. Holst's The Planets, a work of stunning brilliance and immense imagination, never fails to move, intrigue and delight audiences. The concert also features a rare U.S. performance of Vaughan Williams' Piano Concerto.

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.
