From Summit to Sea (National Geographic Live)

National Geographic >

While health officials manage the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, the Seattle Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining National Geographic Live events this season, including Hidden Wild: Secrets of the Everglades (July 19–21, 2020), From Summit to Sea (August 2–4, 2020) and Building the Photo Ark (August 16–18, 2020). All ticket holders will be notified.


Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Andy Mann combines his passions with purpose as a voice for the world’s oceans, following scientists to some of the most extreme locations on the planet in the hope of inspiring change.

Andy’s journey from rock climber to ocean storyteller involves some remarkable detours and misadventures that prove that field science can be every bit as thrilling as the climbing adventures of his past. He has dived alongside crocodiles, sperm whales and sharks, and survived near misses with icebergs, all in pursuit of his ultimate goal: to shed light on Earth’s incredible ocean environments and advocate for their protection.

He now spends over 100 days a year at sea, documenting cutting-edge marine science and telling the story of our rapidly changing planet — covering all seven continents for National Geographic.

National Geographic Live brings the top National Geographic photographers, scientists, filmmakers and adventurers to audiences around the world to share their unbelievable behind-the-scenes stories and stunning images and video.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony. The orchestra will not perform on this program.

Opening Night Concert & Gala

Music Director Thomas Dausgaard opens the 2020–2021 season with an all-time favorite: Tchaikovsky's grand First Piano Concerto.

This piece sits perfectly alongside a new work by one of our nations greatest living composers: John Adams’ multiculturally-inspired I Still Dance.
