On Friday, January 17, the Seattle Symphony treated a packed City Hall lobby to a free one hour concert, including pieces by Mendelssohn and Mozart, and a featured 18 year old violinist Sarah A. Hall. In the audience, toddlers to seniors, to families sitting together on the stairs enjoyed the familiar classical music as it serenaded City Hall. The afternoon show opened with Nick Licata, City Councilmember and Randy Engstrom, the director of the Office of Arts & Culture speaking to the importance of art education, bringing arts to the community, and the work Seattle Symphony has done throughout the years to enrich this city. Check out the photos below, and be sure to check back in June for our summer City Hall concert series to catch another round of musicians playing in City Hall!
