Seattle Modern Orchestra is made up of a core group of local musicians with expertise in contemporary music performance, and who are dedicated to the mission of the organization. The ensemble enthusiastically tackles compositions that explore new sounds, pushing their own musical horizons and sharing their discoveries with audiences. These performers are comfortable in solo, small ensemble, and chamber orchestra settings, with or without conductor, and are deeply embedded in the Seattle community: they represent professors at UW School of Music and Cornish College of the Arts, members of the Seattle Symphony, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Auburn Symphony, Northwest Sinfonietta, Northwest Symphony Orchestra, and many more.
