The Seattle Symphony Unleashes the Power of Music, Brings People Together, and Lifts the Human Spirit
The Seattle Symphony is one of America’s leading symphony orchestras and is internationally acclaimed for its innovative programming and extensive recording history. Under the leadership of Music Director Ludovic Morlot since September 2011, the Symphony is heard from September through July by more than 500,000 people through live performances and radio broadcasts.
It performs in one of the finest modern concert halls in the world — the acoustically superb Benaroya Hall — in downtown Seattle. Its extensive education and community engagement programs reach over 65,000 children and adults each year.
The Seattle Symphony has a deep commitment to new music, commissioning many works by living composers each season. The orchestra has made nearly 150 recordings which have received five Grammy Awards, 26 Grammy nominations, two Emmy Awards, and numerous other accolades. In 2014 the Symphony launched its in-house recording label, Seattle Symphony Media.
