Seattle Symphony Concertmaster before Noah Geller with The Seattle Series


The Series

The Seattle Series is an intimate classical chamber series featuring ad hoc combinations of world-class artists who perform together for one evening to create a magical moment in time.  Outstanding Seattle-based musicians are given the opportunity to invite their colleagues from around the nation and globe to join them for a unique collaboration, unavailable elsewhere.

The series was inspired by the hidden gem of world-class musicians right on Seattle’s doorstep who remain unknown to many in the region.  They and their guest collaborators create for our audience a life-affirming experience infused with passion, beauty, skill, and energy.

The 2025 Season features principal musicians of the Seattle Symphony, including Concertmaster Noah Geller, Principal Cello Efe Baltacigil, Associate Principal Cello Meeka Quan DiLorenzo, Principal Flute Demarre McGill, Associate Principal Flute Jeffrey Barker, and, of the Formosa Quartet, violinist Wayne Lee. Joining these Seattle musicians will be world-leading guests, including Amy Yang, piano; Jose Franch Ballester, clarinet; Benjamin Hochman, piano; Principal Flute of the Chicago Symphony Stefán Ragnar Höskuldsson; and Naumburg Prize-winning pianist Xiaohui Yang.

The Venue

The 2025 season of The Seattle Series will once again take place in the Grand Ballroom, Women’s University Club, Seattle, located on 6th Avenue at the corner of Spring Street.  Valet parking will be available for purchase at the venue’s 6th Avenue entrance, and self-parking is available in nearby parking garages.  

This unique, National Registry of Historic Places venue has been purposely chosen to highlight one of Seattle’s few remaining Colonial Revival structures while providing guests with access to social spaces unavailable at many performance locations.  You will find yourself in an adorned room that nonetheless creates an intimate space to hear and witness first-class, live performances.

The venue is accessible, with a ramped mezzanine entrance through its garage (located adjacent to and north of the building on 6th Ave.). A nearby elevator provides access to the performance space below and the main floor above.
