Benaroya Hall


Opened in 1998, Benaroya Hall is a crown jewel in the heart of downtown Seattle. The 2,500-seat auditorium blends glorious acoustics and architecture to create an unparalleled aesthetic experience. Dark woods, coffered ceiling panels, and excellent sightlines give the concert hall a feeling of intimacy, connecting each member of the audience to the stage. It is truly one of the world’s finest concert halls.
