What We Do

This is no 9-to-5 job.

For the professional musicians who comprise the Seattle Symphony & Opera Orchestra, this is an immense commitment.

We work days, evenings and weekends. Our schedules vary from week to week. Only infrequently do we have two consecutive days off, usually mid-week. We supply our own instruments and stage clothing. Instrument maintenance and personal practice happen on our own time.

The bottom line is that we love the music. That's what our careers -- and our lives -- are about.
