Day of Music @ Benaroya Hall

A tradition since 1998 🎶

📸: Seattle Symphony

📆 June 22nd
⏰  10 am – 4 pm
🎟 Free to attend

📍 Benaroya Hall, 200 University Street, Seattle

The Puget Sound region is home to a stunning range of cultural communities with roots all over the world. In many of these communities, song and dance are central to remaining grounded and connected to ancestral traditions. From rhythmically intense and acrobatic Afro-Brazilian capoeira to fluid, emotive Korean dance, the Puget Sound region’s diversity will be on full display at Seattle Symphony’s Day of Music.

This free, all-day arts and music festival takes place on June 22nd and will feature an eclectic mix of local musical and dance groups as well as film, storytelling, and visual art presentations. Centering African, Latino, Asian, Arab, Indigenous, LGBTQ+, and female performers, the multiple stages throughout Benaroya Hall will create a vibrant tapestry of the Puget Sound region’s cultural communities.

Just like a music festival, you can come and go as you please throughout the day. Some of the performances/displays include Pacific Northwest Ballet’s first Black principal dancer Jonathan Batista, spoken word from Miz Floes, an immersive exhibition of the Mogao Caves, powerful speeches from young scholars at Speak with Purpose, Seattle Symphony musicians (of course), and many more.

Fun fact: The Day of Music has been a Seattle Symphony tradition since 1998, held in honor of the grand opening of Benaroya Hall. This year, they’re celebrating the concert hall’s 25th year of operation.

Performing at Benaroya Hall, the Seattle Symphony unleashes the power of music, brings people together, and lifts the human spirit.
