Club Ludo was one spectacular night of music at the Chihuly Boathouse! The event on June 9, 2017 featured performances by Seattle Symphony musicians Evan Anderson, Natasha Bazhanov, Brittany Boulding Breeden, Nathan Chan, Artur Girsky, Eric Han, Eric Jacobs, Sayaka Kokubo, Mae Lin, Meeka Quan DiLorenzo and John Turman that were a virtuosic showcase.

Guests also enjoyed an intimate recital by renowned Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto that was captivating from start to finish. The Seattleites, featuring the Symphony’s own Joseph Kaufman and Alexander White, transformed the glassblowing studio into a dance party, and KEXP DJ Michele Myers kept the party going long into the night!

Thank you to everyone who attended this annual summer fundraiser for helping to raise $200,000 in support of the Symphony’s education and community programs, providing generous funding for programs that enrich the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds.

Special thanks to the Club Ludo event committee, the many individuals and companies who donated auction items, and the incredible sponsors who helped make Club Ludo a success.
