What we're about

I am a northwest native who loves arts and cultural events and I would love to enjoy them with my Meetup friends! Events will include Pacific Northwest Ballet dress rehearsals, lectures, demonstrations and seminars, Seattle Art Museum lectures and exhibits, art gallery exhibits and art walks, and cultural fairs to name a few. Since I am also a foodie, these events will be combined with lunch, dinner, happy hours or wine tastings. I'm excited to share the best of Seattle's Arts and Culture with you!

Concert merging Indian and Wesern Classical musical traditions

"The popularity of the Piano Trio dates back centuries, and the arrangement has been employed by composers from Mozart to Beethoven all the way to greats from the modern era of chamber music. Now Town Hall presents a concert that iterates on this classic format with the debut of a newly commissioned Piano Trio by emerging composer Indian-American composer Reena Esmail. Esmail works between the worlds of Indian and Western classical music, and is known for merging Western composition techniques with traditional Hindustani instrumentation and musical themes. Joshua Roman takes the stage alongside pianist David Fung, known for intensely poetic and uncommonly expressive performances, as well as violinist Kristin Lee, who has been lauded for her remarkable versatility and impeccable technique. Roman assembles this phenomenal arrangement of musicians for a showcase that highlights modern composition at its finest. Join us for a spectacular cross-cultural intersection of classical music traditions—and the world premiere of Esmail’s newest composition." This event will be popular because of Joshua Roman's fame, so you are advised to buy tickets in advance. Tickets are $15 for Town Hall members and $20 for others.

Music of Debussy, Wagner, Janáček

Benaroya Hall

Please respect Meetup's mission of meeting with other members and sign up only if you will meet with others who are attending before the concert and during intermission. Please buy seats on the third floor tier (box seats are good), which has good prices and good acoustics, so everyone is on the same floor. Buy tickets by phone or online: see below Seattle Symphony's description: "It’s Ludovic Morlot’s final appearance as Music Director, and he is throwing a party for the ages. In Debussy’s gorgeous Nocturnes, clouds drift off, festivals flash and fade away, and the shimmering sea beckons with the seductive call of the Sirens. For Janáček, the king of Czech opera, composing the choral work The Eternal Gospel offered an outlet for timeless themes of love and peace that transcend any language or faith." Richard Wagner, Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde Claude Debussy, Pelléas et Mélisande Suite Claude Debussy, Nocturnes Leoš Janáček, The Eternal Gospel Seattle Symphony box office:[masked]https://cart.seattlesymphony.org/single/SYOS.aspx?p=20149
