Hey Seattle, we’re Emerald City Music, the “beacon for the casual-classical movement presenting high-level musicians in a totally unstuffy environment” (CityArts Magazine). We’re the eclectic, open-bar destination for Seattle’s music lovers to dive deep into the world’s biggest genre of music alongside an unbelievable cast of top-tier musicians.
September 13 (8pm), old meets new in the retelling of Stravinsky’s kitschy Soldier’s Tale. A cast of NYC Ballet dancers join forces with librettist Mark Campbell (award-winning writer of Seattle Opera’s The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs). The night caps off with an edgy world-premiere by Seattle’s own Angelique Poteat entitled “Her Story of a Soldier”.

“Single-handedly raising Seattle’s profile in the classical music world, this series has major performers and composers in a chamber music setting. The venue, the back of a coffee and chocolate shop, increases the salon sensibility.” – ECM Audience member
