Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra

Outreach

The Seattle Phil has a longstanding commitment to outreach activities.

Each year, we visit the Renton/IKEA Center at Renton High School to present a Fall Family Concert, which gives the local community an opportunity to hear a live symphonic program in their own city. We are also proud to welcome talented music students from the Renton area to rehearse and perform with Seattle Phil for this program, which affords these young musicians the experience of making music with older colleagues who can add to their growing musical knowledge.

In collaboration with the music school at Cornish College for the Arts, the Phil designates several evenings each year to play the works of student composers so that they may hear their compositions played by a full orchestra and hone their craft with that knowledge.

We are also proud to support the efforts of Seattle Music Partners, a not-for-profit organization that offers after school music lessons to students with minimal access to the arts.

Upcoming Concert:

“A floodtide of inspired invention”: Beethoven’s Seventh

April 6, 2019 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

"A masterpiece of technical skill, taste, imagination, craftsmanship and inspiration." Thus did the hyper-critical Hector Berlioz sum up his thoughts on Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, one of the most beloved of Beethoven's Nine ever since its wildly successful premiere (at which the audience insisted on an immediate repeat of the slow movement). Franz Liszt's impassioned and innovative Piano Concerto No. 1 will be performed by the winner of the Philharmonic's 2018 Don Bushell competition, Hexin Qiao. A symphonic work by Finnish composer Helvi Leiviskä rounds out this special concert.

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.
