cannot go wrong with music

compared to other big-named symphonies, it feels a bit local, however this symphony frequently hosts worldly renowned musicians!

The Seattle Symphony is my favorite place to go for music events. Though my budget is limited, I can always find a price that works. I also purchase a season pass for 4 Noontime Performances, which is a good buy. The acoustics are marvelous and I don't think there's a bad seat in the house. My "Very Good" instead of... More

A vibrant, up and coming symphony. Establishing a balance between 'traditional' classic repertoire and innovate programs to reach out to new populations.

We went for a Friday night "Untuxed" concert. The musicians wear street clothes, the audience is more relaxed and the dress code is more NorthFace than Nordstrom. The guest conductor gave an informative introduction to the pieces being played. All in all a lovely evening.

We have been to the Seattle Symphony many times and have always found the quality of the musicianship to be excellent. We used to live on the East Coast and we have enjoyed the Seattle Symphony's performances as much as anything we heard in NYC.

My friend is one of the sopranos in the symphony chorale. I get the pleasure of hearing the folks perform pieces I miss from everyday music. Now, I've heard better around the world, but for the area. This is a great group. The conductor is meticulous and it shows in the group performance.

We are season ticketholders for good reason. We used to live in San Francisco and enjoyed that world-class symphony. Seattle can hold its own with the Seattle Symphony, refreshed by the arrival of French Conductor Ludovic Morlot as Music Director.

Wonderful organization. Congrats on the Grammy nominations! I wish I lived downtown so I could go more often.

Comfortable seat with a fantastic view of the stage, reasonably priced ticket and intermission refreshments. The orchestra were very good, conducted by Jeff Tyzik who while being an excellent conductor, also had a good rap pour with the audience.
