Public Concerts

Free Public Concert Series

LMC’s most visible face is its Public Concert Series that offers over 50 free classical music concerts from October through May by LMC member-musicians and guests. The classical music series is presented at a variety of venues throughout the Seattle metro area, including Seattle Art Museum, Frye Art Museum, Seattle Public Library, Central and West Seattle Branches, University House Wallingford, Mirabella, Bellevue’s Crossroads Community Center Theater and the Music Center of the Northwest in North Seattle.

These intimate, one-hour, music programs are free and open to the public. No advance tickets are required. On the day of the performance at the Frye Museum, attendees are asked to obtain a free ticket at the front desk to monitor auditorium seating.

Fragments from an Alzheimer’s Journey: Goodbye Again, Poetry by Esther Altshul Helfgott, Music by Janet Anderson
  1. He’s sadness
  2. Today I wheel him to the window
  3. More and more
  4. His face is my grandfather’s
  5. Today as I walked into his room
  6. He’s better today
  7. Tonight at dinner
  8. He’s bedridden

  10. How long?
  11. Goodbye. Again.
