Seattle Festival Orchestra
The group formerly known as Musicians Emeritus Symphony Orchestra hasn't changed its mission—it's just dropped a few syllables. Under their new moniker, these musicians continue to tunefully bow, blare, and percuss their way through polished programs that celebrate the joy of performing. Music Director Wesley Schulz leads the musicians—who range in age from teenagers to nonagenarians—as they sonically tear into timeless pieces and new compositions alike.
