Symphony Musicians Circle

Seattle Symphony donors are invited to join the Symphony Musicians Circle. This giving circle brings you closer to the outstanding musicians at the heart of the orchestra, providing new donors to the Maestros Circle ($10,000–14,999) the opportunity to form a season-long partnership with a Seattle Symphony section musician. Benefits at this level will take you behind the scenes to connect personally with your musician and other Symphony Musicians Circle donors.

"I loved the behind the scenes look at the orchestra at work we got at the rehearsal. Getting to know the musician I sponsored has given me a deeper insight into the amazing artistry and dedication of the Symphony musicians."

– Terry Hecker, Symphony Musician Circle Supporter

"I really enjoy meeting our supporters and hearing their life stories. I like learning how they become interested in joining the Symphony family ─ whether it's because they played music as a kid or attended a concert with a friend. Plus, joining these supporters and other section musicians for lunch and lively conversations is a real treat."

– Rachel Swerdlow, Seattle Symphony Viola
