One of my favorite venues in Seattle for top quality classical performers and readings by my favorite writers. Benaroya is also at a great location with wonderful restaurants within walking distance for meals before or after. Parking is reasonably priced and there is easy access to I-5.

The Seattle Chamber Music Society offers free 30 minute recitals one hour prior to their mainstage concerts during the summer. They're held in the Nordstrom Recital Hall, not the auditorium, and even though we arrived less than five minutes before the recital, there were still some seats available. We heard a lovely concert of Bartok music for two violins. The acoustics were wonderful, the seats were comfy, the price was right, and afterwards you still had pretty much the whole evening ahead of you.

These folks recently debuted an acclaimed work at Carnegie Hall, and they are on more people's maps. But they have always had an exquisite sound. If I were richer and had time for it, I'd attend every performance, even Mahler <shudder>. The musical options are very varied and there are so many different kinds of subscriptions, times (the shorter, untuxed versions for folks to attend on the way home, etc.) and special events - this symphony is a big part of why people stay in this dark, gloomy, cloudy climate and don't move someplace sensible; how could you, once you become addicted to this excellence, ever settle for less?

Classical music lovers should not miss the opportunity to hear the Seattle Symphony in its downtown home.
