Seattle Chamber Music Society Summer Festival

17 July – 13 September, 2021

Where is it? In the heart of downtown Seattle at the Center for Chamber Music

How to get there? From SeaTac airport, the Center is located 20 minutes north via the light rail (Symphony station stop at Union St.). If driving from the airport, take the Seneca St. exit to downtown.

Local accommodation Many hotels are within walking distance from the luxurious Olympic Fairmont and Four Seasons Hotel to the Sheraton or Hilton, or any number of small boutique hotels like the Inn at the Market.

What can tourists visit nearby? Summer in Seattle offers beautiful outdoor escapes like a short ferry ride to Bainbridge Island and The Bloedel Reserve or a day trip to Mt. Rainier. For those looking for museums, the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum, and the Frye Art Museum are all wonderful option. Explore the Pike Place Market and visit the original Starbucks Coffee.

About the festival

What type of programmes do you have? Every concert brings together top soloists, principal musicians from orchestras, and renowned chamber musicians to create unique ensembles exploring masterpieces of the repertoire, as well as new discoveries.

What are the venues like? Benaroya Hall’s Nordstrom Recital Hall is an acoustically superb auditorium that seats 540 patrons in a purpose built concert space.

Why should someone watch your festival? Seattle Chamber Music Society offers world-class music in one of the most naturally beautiful cities in the world!

Dress code Dress for concerts is typically quite casual. It is more about being in the space to hear music with other chamber music lovers than it is about the latest fashion.

Food & Drink Downtown Seattle offers a vibrant dining scene with fresh seafood, a variety of different cultures infusing the cuisine with an international flair, and a number of celebrated chefs with their flagship restaurants. For those feeling like exploring the area, different neighbourhoods and nearby cities have unique breweries, distilleries, and wineries.
