Community Concerts – Prison Concerts




“Breathtaking, relaxing and very uplifting. I felt at peace.”
– Inmate and audience member at the Monroe Correctional Complex

The Seattle Symphony’s Prison Concerts bring hope and healing to inmates of local prisons through live music. This project started in 2011 with Seattle Symphony violinist Stephen Bryant and his wife Sue Jane playing string duets for a group of men at the Monroe Correctional Complex. Since then small ensembles of Seattle Symphony musicians have returned for annual visits to Monroe and have also visited the Washington Correctional Center for Women in Gig Harbor.
