Music Under The Stars //
Bring a picnic, stretch out on the lawn, and enjoy a live audio broadcast of each of our Summer Festival concerts, provided directly to neighborhood parks by KING-FM. Each evening begins at 7:30pm with live chamber music performed by an outstanding student or pre-professional ensemble, and continues at 8:00pm with KING-FMs live broadcast, direct from Benaroya.
This summer we continue our partnership with four Seattle parks and the communities surrounding them. You can find us in West Seattle, on Capitol Hill, Downtown, and in Columbia City this July.
Every broadcast is preceded by an outstanding live, student ensemble.

Located in the heart of Seattle, Volunteer Park is home to the Volunteer Park Conservatory and the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The Landmarks Preservation Board designated Volunteer Park as a Seattle Landmark on November 2, 2011. This historic Olmsted Park is beloved by residents and visitors alike. Events are held at the amphitheater.
Freeway Park provides a space where residents, shoppers, downtown office workers, hotel visitors and the whole array of people from all backgrounds who make up the downtown population may come together to enjoy the social elements of a city park.
Along busy Rainier Avenue, Columbia Park offers open grass and two magnificent maple trees beside the Columbia Branch of the Seattle Public Library. This park serves as a buffer against the traffic, and provides a great place to pour over newly borrowed books. The park was annexed to the city in 1907.
