Welcome to our 2017-2018 season!

Renton concerts will be held at New Hope Presbyterian Church (formerly First Evangelical Presbyterian Church), and Seattle concerts at Plymouth Congregational Church. Both venues are great places for classical concerts.

Be sure to add these dates to your calendar! With SFO continuing to grow in both membership and musicianship, this season is sure to offer some very special afternoons of music-making. To keep things simple, buy a season ticket through Brown Paper Tickets!

Concert programs and times are subject to change.

Come hear these dramatic gems of the repertoire again - or for the first time! Carrie Rehkopf & John Michel are SFO's guest soloists for this concert in the Brahms Double Concerto - an epic technical work for two solo instruments. Carrie & John are string professors at Central Washington University and frequent collaborators with orchestras throughout the region. In the second half of the concert, Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony will have you cheering at its rousing finale. It's a can't-miss!
