The Seattle Orchestra rose to fame with its very first performance that was held in December, 1903. The show was directed by the renowned music conductor of the time, Harry West. After a period of sixteen years, the ensemble officially organized under the title they are currently recognized with (Seattle Symphony Orchestra). During its early years, the orchestra was trained and developed by the highly skilled conductor, Sir Thomas Beecham. In the year 1954, Milton Katims took over the position of the official Music Director of the ensemble. Under his leadership, the orchestra reached new heights of success. His role was instrumental in expanding the educational programs of the organization. He performed his duties as Seattle Symphony’s lead conductor for more than two decades.

From 1976 until 1983, the orchestra was directed by Rainer Miedel, who led the ensemble on its very first European tour (1980). Due to Rainer’s unfortunate death in 1983, Gerard Schwarz was appointed for the designation of the Orchestra’s Music Advisor. Due to his devotion and immense contributions, he was upgraded to the prestigious position of the Symphony’s Music Director in 1985. The Seattle Symphony Orchestra flourished massively under his leadership, producing 125 hit recordings and garnering a number of twelve Grammy nominations, in a time span of twenty six years.

Since 1983, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra has held over a hundred premieres. These include the commissions by seven famed US composers in the Symphony’s Centennial Season 2003-2004 as well as eighteen new commissioned pieces in the 2010-2011 season. The latter was in honor of Schwarz’s last season as the Music Director of the Orchestra.

The Seattle Symphony Orchestra has made a conscious effort to devote itself to the cause of promoting the relatively neglected and overlooked music pieces by the composers of the 20th century. By picking up the works of some of the most well-known and talented composers of the time and re-mastering them under the Naxos label, the orchestra has revived and refreshed the memories and tunes of the classic music era. Towards the end of the last millennium (1998), the Seattle Symphony Orchestra inaugurated its home concert venue, the Benaroya Hall. After another three years, the Soundbridge Seattle Symphony Music Discovery Center was also opened. This served as the hub where people from all age groups and backgrounds could explore the various facets of orchestral music through offerings like exhibitions, educational classes as well as live music performances.

The Seattle Symphony currently holds concerts under the conductorship of Ludovic Morlot. With him as the leader, the Orchestra received immense critical appreciation for its blockbuster acts such as that of Berlioz’s ‘The Damnation of Faust,’ ‘Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring,’ and Holst’ ‘The Planets.’ Other highly acclaimed acts by the Symphony under Morlot include the inaugural presentation of Sonic Evolution and a season long series of performances dedicated to the music of the famous French composer, Henri Dutilleuxx.

Morlot’s second season (2012-2013) as music Director of Seattle Symphony was marked by an even greater success than the previous. It produced many sell out shows. Among these include performances of the works of Rachmaninov’s piano concertos and the Symphony’s first presentation of Messiaen’s Turangalila.

Now in his third season as the celebrated Orchestra’s official Music Director, Ludovic Morlot is all set to lead the highly skilled and well crafted music ensemble to new paths of success. To be able to watch the performance live in action, make sure to get your Seattle Symphony Orchestra tickets well in time.
