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.
The sixth Annual Art of the Piano presents:
Darkness and Light
A solo piano showcase complementing the current SAM Gallery exhibit, Darks and Lights.
“The artists in this show contrast darks and lights as autumn turns to winter. Nature’s cycles, retreating to our roots, and finding home are all explored by our premier Northwest artists.” (quoted from the SAM Website description) The SAM Gallery is free today. We invite you to explore the exhibit Darks and Lights after you experience this musical journey and share the magical connection that can exist between the visual and performing arts.
