Music and Concerts

There is good reason Seattle is considered the City of Music.

While Seattle is well known as the birthplace of grunge, we’re also home to more traditional musical delights, such as one of the world’s most recorded symphony orchestras and our renowned Seattle Opera, both of which enchant audiences year after year with their compelling performances. This “City of Music” offers more than eighty clubs and venues presenting live music on a regular basis, allowing you to choose anything from a sizzling jazz trio to your new favorite rock band. Whatever your taste, Seattle will set the stage for you.
