The Symphony

Federal Way Symphony 
Bernadette's violin teacher plays for the Federal Way Symphony and the Rainier Symphony. She encourages her students to attend these or another symphonies' concerts. After looking at the schedule and reading that a guest violinist would be performing in Federal Way, my husband agreed to accompany my two oldest daughters to their first symphony. 

They enjoyed listening to Felix Mendelssohn's Fingal's Cave, Ludwig van Beethoven's Violin Concerto, and Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 1. They were able to sit close to the stage and see even more than their seating permitted, thanks to a large screen that displayed a magnified view of various members of the symphony. My oldest daughter really appreciated this enhanced view and found the guest violinist's fingering fascinating. My husband was impressed by the talent of the musicians and the force with which the music was played. All three of them are looking forward to going to the symphony in December and listening to some Christmas music.

If you have a symphony near you, I highly recommend that you (and your children) take the time to experience at least one concert.

Symphonies in our area include:


  1. So lucky to have all that nearby. My 10th grade son is taking the Classical Music Appreciation elective phone conference class with MODG and all of us are enjoying listening and identifying an array of classical music choices.

  2. We thoroughly enjoy listening to classical music.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
