Seattle Symphony to play at Carnegie Hall

Seattle Symphony has earned a spot on Carnegie Hall’s Spring for Music festival lineup in 2014.

Spring for Music, an annual festival inaugurated last year, is designed to shine a spotlight on excellent North American orchestras. Seattle Symphony is one of six selected from a field of 60 for the 2014 edition. The other five are the New York Philharmonic, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.

In a prepared statement, symphony executive director Simon Woods said, “Nothing in the music world is more prized than an appearance at Carnegie Hall, and we are absolutely thrilled to be appearing there in 2014 with a fascinating program including a major new commission from Alaska-based composer John Luther Adams, that will be premiered in Seattle in June 2013.”
