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.


This critically acclaimed [untitled] series explores new and contemporary works — all in the informal atmosphere of the Samuel & Althea Stroum. Thomas Dausgaard shares the music of his fellow countryman, Danish composer Bent Sørensen, whose shimmering works have been compared with the paintings of Georges Seurat. Sørensen is the 2018 winner of the prestigious Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition.
