Musical Gifts: Priceless music in 2018-19

  • Student musician playing a cello.

Admission is free to more than 60 events on UW Music's 2018-19 season, thanks to a generous gift from the late Mina B. Person and the Brechemin Family Foundation. In addition, the School of Music is grateful to Seattle Symphony Orchestra for two collaborative community events on the season--the Jan. 25 Side by Side concert at Benaroya Hall and the March 15 concert by Seattle Symphony with UW Music Faculty.  Read on for a complete list of free events on the 2018-19 season, and make sure to consult our concert calendar at www.music.washington.edu/calendar for even more free performances and music-related events.
