Join us at the Seattle Symphony for the class “Experiencing Music”! No musical training is necessary – just bring your curiosity and your willingness to engage in the communal experience of live music at the highest level. All students are welcome to sign up for Honors 398.

We will be going to five concerts at Benaroya Hall throughout the quarter (dates and times TBD). We’ll prepare for these concerts through discussions and readings in classes held on campus, we’ll have talks given by Symphony staff, and we’ll go on a backstage tour.
