Chamber Music in the Park

Concert Overview

Each year, SCMS organizes a free concert at Volunteer Park featuring our Festival musicians. It is the perfect way to enjoy glorious music on a beautiful summer evening. Over 3,000 people attended our 2018 event and enjoyed listening to works by Arensky and Beethoven.

We also feature a free Community Play-Along at this event, where local musicians can perform a work for string ensemble alongside our Festival musicians. Last summer more than 60 amateur and professional string players joined together and played Mozart’s Serenade in G Major, K. 525 “Eine kleine Nachtmusik”.

Full details for our 2019 Chamber Music in the Park performance will be announced in March 2019.

Free public event

It is so wonderful to sit outside on a beautiful summer evening and hearing this glorious music fill the park. Events like these remind us why it is so great to live in a city filled with as much art and culture as Seattle!
