Side-by-Side Concerts


Mentoring the Next Generation of Musicians

As part of its commitment to coaching and mentoring young musicians from local high schools, universities, youth orchestra organizations and community orchestras the Seattle Symphony gives numerous free Side-by-Side Concerts each season. The concerts feature musicians from community and high school orchestras performing alongside their professional counterparts.

Partnership with University of Washington School of Music

Ludovic Morlot is a committed mentor of young aspiring conductors. Since 2013 he has served as Chair of Orchestral Conducting Studies in the University of Washington’s School of Music. In this capacity Morlot makes five to seven appearances at the University each year, leading classes and seminars in conducting. Students in the program also attend Seattle Symphony rehearsals throughout the season as part of their training under Morlot.

In addition, the Seattle Symphony frequently rehearses and performs symphonic works by UW composition majors, offering these young composers an opportunity to hear their works played by a professional orchestra. Concerts take place in Benaroya Hall and are open to the public.
