Resources and Help for Freelance Musicians
At the Seattle Symphony, the musicians and staff are worried about all the freelance artists whose income has suddenly been reduced to zero for the foreseeable future. The Education and Community Engagement Committee at the Seattle Symphony have compiled a list of emergency funds and resources that symphony members have donated to, to try and help.
We will update this list with new donation opportunities and resources as they become available.
Our thanks to Seattle Symphony flutist Jeffrey Barker for compiling and crowd sourcing these links.

Are you a Seattle area music teacher trying to teach remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic? Please consider filling out this form! It’s being administered by the Education and Community Engagement Committee here at the Seattle Symphony with the goal of connecting local teachers and students. We hope to provide a resource to students who are suffering from a lack of musical outlets and guidance right now, as well as to music teachers who are losing private lesson income. More info to come, but for now, feel free to share and send this around to any teacher in the Seattle area who might be interested.
