It's a cross-disciplinary, arts-education collaboration that doesn't exist anywhere else in America!

About the Project

Teenage musicians performing in the orchestra pit of Seattle's McCaw Hall, accompanying teenage dancers in the re-creation of an historic masterpiece. Help make it happen!

For the sixth year in a row, the Seattle Youth Symphony has the unique opportunity to partner with Pacific Northwest Ballet for a series of performances that enliven and enrich the Seattle cultural community.

For four performances in March, the Seattle Youth Symphony will provide live orchestral accompaniment to Adolph Adam's Le Corsaire, a ballet performed by dancers from Pacific Northwest Ballet Company.

The opportunity to perform with a professional-quality, live orchestra enhances the educational experience offered by the PNB School, while the opportunity to collaborate directly in performance with outstanding pre-professional dancers and choreographers enhances the educational experience offered by the Seattle Youth Symphony.

Not only that! Thousands of Seattle area school-children will be inspired by the magnificent music, artful dancing and colorful costumes in a special school-performance on Friday, March 25th.

Through this one-of-a-kind program, young musicians learn about the craft and artistry of dance and young dancers learn about the value and vibrancy of live music. And students at hundreds of Seattle area schools get to experience world-class music and dance, many for the very first time. The result is an inspiring collaboration that instills in the artists and audiences of tomorrow a deeper appreciation of the creative processes that link together two important artistic genres.

Funds will be exclusively used to support the Seattle Youth Symphony's participation; including music and instrument rental, copying, transportation and cartage costs and artistic and administrative expenses.
