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:

“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.
