Getting Ready for the 2022 Season

Rain City Symphony nurtures and promotes the appreciation of music by providing quality music performances in the Puget Sound region at no charge to the audience. We have concerts in December, March, and June. We provide amateur musicians with an orchestral experience in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. Open to intermediate and advanced strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion, Rain City Symphony plays standard orchestral repertoire.

Our season runs September through early June. If you are interested in playing with us, please see Contacts for more information.

With the pandemic forcing us to shutdown in person operations for most of 2020 and the first half of 2021, we hope to open the 2022 season with relatively normal operations in September 2021. See Concerts.

In the interim, we've had a few string groups meeting in person - mostly quartets but a group of 14 in the spring - all physically distanced and masked. We've also had woodwind, string, and brass ensembles meeting online using music collaboration software. We'll have some of those groups perform some of what they've been working on in upcoming concerts.
