Season Opening Reimagined


Saturday, September 19, at 7:30pm In a re-imagined opening night, the Seattle Symphony weaved together a program that embraces our city and our core beliefs as an organization. Mozart’s Don Giovanni overture and Beethoven’s seventh symphony will bookend Seattle’s own Whitney Mongé performing a selection of her Alternative Soul songs with the orchestra and Mary D. Watkins’ soaringly beautiful orchestral suite, Five Movements in Color as we set the stage together for an exciting 2020/2021 season from Benaroya Hall. Program: MOZART: Overture to Don Giovanni, K. 527 WHITNEY MONGÉ: Song Selections MARY D. WATKINS: Five Movements in Color: Soul of Remembrance BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 7 The Seattle Symphony thanks the Season Opening Reimagined supporters whose generosity made possible bringing the musical celebration of a new season to Seattle and beyond. This year’s event honors longtime Seattle Symphony supporter Judith Fong.
