LMC 130th Anniversary Virtual Toast

Saturday, March 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 2:45 pm


Come join us on Saturday, March 20th at 2:00pm, 130 years to the day from our very first public concert in 1891!

Learn about the LMC’s early days and how we’ve preserved our history.

Hear music from the LMC’s first concert, including a piano piece that was performed on March 20th, 1891 and again on March 20th, 1916, when LMC members toasted 25 years of progress.

Raise a virtual glass with us in celebration of 130 years of cultivating music in Seattle!
