Join us for a culminating celebration concert featuring a world premiere composed in collaboration with Seattle Symphony Composer in Residence Alexandra Gardner and LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness in Seattle.
The Seattle Symphony’s Simple Gifts program aims to empower individuals who are experiencing homelessness to connect with their creativity; develop deeper roots in the community through service, advocacy and collaboration; spark joy and inspire hope in individuals and communities that face disproportionate amounts of hardship; and raise awareness of the homelessness crisis that is occurring in King County.
New Work (World Premiere)
