About Us

Vision

IMG_20190223_153308.jpg

Seattle Festival Orchestra is an all-volunteer community orchestra that presents concerts to delight and engage a 21st century audience. With diverse programming, SFO creates space for its audience to experience the catharsis of the wide range of emotions available in orchestra music, to feel with our musicians the joy and sorrow, wonder and ecstasy of our art. In order to create an engrossing concert experience, SFO consistently breaks down barriers between performer and audience and seeks out opportunities for audience engagement. SFO believes strongly in universal access to the arts, providing family- friendly concerts for kids, young soloists and a side-by-side performance opportunity for local high school students.

Mission

Seattle Festival Orchestra cultivates modern audiences through diverse programming, performance practice, and youth engagement.
