Concert Listings

Find music you love! At the heart of the Live Music Project is a calendar of classical and contemporary concerts in Seattle and Puget Sound, from student orchestras to the Seattle Symphony.

Through the calendar, you can explore the music of 1,000 musicians and ensembles, including dozens of free concerts, kid-friendly performances, and premieres. Search for your favorite composer, browse by instrument, or just dive in.

You can also get our weekly concert listings and monthly list of free concerts direct to your inbox.

Spontaneous Free Tickets

Explore the local music scene for free!The LMP Spontaneous Free Tickets program is an informal way for organizations to reach out to listeners and build audiences.

Tickets are donated by local performing arts organizations, and ticket recipients are selected at random a few days to a week before each performance. After each concert, winners fill out a feedback survey in which they can request to join the ensemble’s mailing list and/or send them a note.

The listeners are responsive and their notes are inspiring. This program introduces listeners to works and ensembles they may not be familiar with, and helps grow the audience-performer relationship in a way that is both meaningful and lasting.
