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:

Danses Macabres: An American Halloween

October 22, 2014 at 7:30pm | Benaroya Hall

The spirit of dance hovers over this all-American, Halloween-themed program. In addition to Aaron Copland's evergreen ballet score to "Rodeo", the concert features a suite from Bernard Herrmann's dance-infused, Oscar®-winning score to "The Devil and Daniel Webster", the world première of music director Adam Stern's "Spirits of the Dead" (after Edgar Allan Poe), and a new take on Morton Gould's "Tap Dance Concerto" featuring a masquerading soloist!

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.
