This Week's Seattle Symphony Concert Broadcasts Dedicated to Victims of Racism

This week’s broadcasts are dedicated to those who have lost their lives and all affected by violence enabled by institutional racism.

In recognition of the tragic deaths and violence that have shaken the nation, the Seattle Symphony dedicates this week’s concert broadcasts to those who have lost their lives and all affected by the recent violence enabled by institutional racism. As we mourn the losses of Manuel Ellis, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others, the Seattle Symphony stands in solidarity with our Black colleagues, artists and community.

Earlier this week, the Seattle Symphony joined peer arts and cultural institutions across the city in a joint statement grieving the deaths of victims of violence rooted in institutional racism. Together, the organizations vowed their commitment to act as agents for positive change and foster more equitable, diverse and inclusive workplaces and collective communities. The Seattle Symphony continues in its mission to bring people strength and unity through music and commits to listening, learning and doing more to fulfill that mission and serve the community.

Concert broadcasts dedicated in memory of the victims include this week’s streams of Selections from Rachmaninov Symphony No. 2, which takes the place of previously announced concert rebroadcast programming.
