Music returns to Benaroya Hall for the 2020–2021 season with the Seattle Symphony's brand-new subscription-based streaming service, Seattle Symphony Live. This online platform premieres weekly livestreamed concerts with shortened programs and a smaller, socially distanced, PPE-protected orchestra.
Update for 11/19: With respect to current statewide restrictions for Washington State and in solidarity with the Seattle community as coronavirus cases rise, the Seattle Symphony has made the decision to pause live performances from Benaroya Hall for the next few weeks. The Symphony is working to reschedule the live broadcast of Ivan & Alyosha with the Seattle Symphony (originally set for December 4); Holiday Pops with the Seattle Symphony (previously scheduled for December 11) is canceled. All Seattle Symphony Live users will be notified. The current Seattle Symphony Live concert schedule will be kept updated.
While health officials manage the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, the Seattle Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel all special presentations listed below. Our top priority remains the health and safety of our patrons, staff and musicians. See below for ticket donation and exchange information.
