Soundbridge Events

Day of Music | All Ages | FREE!

The Seattle Symphony and Music Director Ludovic Morlot invite the public to experience live music at Benaroya Hall with a FREE Day of Music on Sunday, September 18, from 12 noon to 6 p.m. Over 40 musical acts representing a host of genres — from rock and hip hop to jazz, classical and folk — will appear on multiple stages. A full listing of performers and times follows below.

Day of Music is FREE and no tickets are required for entrance. Activities specifically designed for children begin at 10:30 a.m. in Soundbridge Seattle Symphony Music Discovery Center, on the corner of Union Street and Second Avenue.

New this year, a wine tasting — featuring live music and select wineries from Seattle Metropolitan magazine’s September 2011 “Washington’s 100 Best Wines” list — will occur in the Norcliffe Founders Room from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Tasting tickets will be available at the door for $20; the wine tasting is the only part of Day of Music that requires a paid ticket.
