From January to May, the Seattle Symphony will perform three free Community Concerts in and around Seattle. These concerts are part of the Symphony’s ongoing commitment to broaden community accessibility to cultural programming, breaking down financial or geographic barriers.
Concerts will take place at the Shorecrest Performing Arts Center at 7pm on Tuesday, January 21 and Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion at 2 p.m. on May 18. In addition, the orchestra continues its annual tradition of performing a free lunchtime concert at Seattle City Hall at 12 noon on Friday, January 24.
“At the Seattle Symphony, we are committed to bringing the joy of music to the widest audience possible, and our free Community Concerts are a fantastic way for us to do this,” says Executive Director Simon Woods. “It is a pleasure to be able to make new friends and connect with new audiences across our region.”
Admission to all Community Concerts is free and tickets are not required.
The concert on January 21 at the Shore crest Performing Arts Center features the Seattle Symphony performing Side-by-Side with the Cascade Youth Symphony Orchestra.
