JUNE 17–JULY 2, 2016



Join us for nine concerts over two weeks as we celebrate a century of great homegrown music from George Gershwin's jazzy downtown swing to the Alaskan "sonic geography" of John Luther Adams, from the racing pulse of Hollywood to the hypnotic energy of Philip Glass — and everything in between! All this for the unique summer pricing of $25 per concert. Tickets will be short in supply but the concerts will be long in excitement as Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony bring you a thrilling celebration of what makes American music great!
