First Concerts: Meet the Oboe

While health officials manage the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, the Seattle Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel performances through May 31, 2020. All ticket holders will be notified.


Meet the oboe in Octave 9! Seattle Symphony Principal Oboe Mary Lynch will perform short pieces and invite questions from curious little ones in a sensory friendly environment. Children will learn how to be musical explorers and try out instruments before the show.
