Public Concerts and Events

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.

Settings by John Duke (1899-1984)

Good morning, Midnight
Heart! We will forget him!
Let down the bars, Oh Death
An awful tempest mashed the air
Nobody knows this little Rose
Bee! I’m expecting you!

Amber Rose Johnson, soprano

Settings by Aaron Copland (1900-1990)

Why do they shut me out of heaven?
Heart, we will forget him
Dear March, come in!
When they come back
I felt a funeral in my brain
Going to heaven!
I’ve heard an organ talk sometimes

Lin Chen, soprano and Lucy Wenger, piano

Too Few the Mornings Be
