Free Day of Music Tomorrow at Benaroya Hall

From the Seattle Symphony:

The Seattle Symphony and Music Director Ludovic Morlot invite the public to experience the thrill of live music at Benaroya Hall with a FREE Day of Music on Sunday, September 22, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

More than 35 musical acts representing a wide array of styles — from rock and hip hop to jazz, classical and folk — will appear on multiple stages throughout Benaroya Hall, including the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium, Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, Garden of Remembrance, Norcliffe Founders Room and the Samuel & Althea Stroum Grand Lobby. This public event celebrates the 15th anniversary of Benaroya Hall and the start of the Seattle Symphony’s 2013–2014 season. Day of Music is free and no tickets are required for entrance.


Soundbridge Seattle Symphony Music Discovery Center, located on the corner of Second Avenue and Union Street, will host a full day of family activities beginning an hour earlier, at 10 a.m., and continuing until 5 p.m. Families with children are invited to engage their musical curiosity through instrument exploration and instrument making in the center’s fun-filled musical playroom. In addition, Soundbridge will host free interactive classes and concerts for children — including Musical Storytime, Everyone Come Drum and The Ugly Duckling — throughout the day.

Local food trucks, including Off the Rez, Fusion on the Run, Veraci Pizza, Lumpia World, Curb Jumper, Street Treats and Jemil’s Big Easy, will line Second Avenue alongside Benaroya Hall for the duration of the event.  

Classical KING FM 98.1 is the media sponsor of Day of Music.
