Halloween Children's Concert – A sensory friendly concert
Our concert for kids with ASD is one of the most moving and heartwarming concerts we do every year. The kids get to make as much noise as they want (we like noise!) and their parents don't have to worry about the concert being disrupted. After the concert, we have an instrumental petting zoo where the kids get to touch instruments and play them if they want. Last year, the most desired instrument was the conductor's baton! In partnership with the Music Therapy program at Seattle Pacific University and local professionals, the program is designed to be "sensory friendly" and welcoming.

The Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra has strong ties to cities surrounding Lake Washington. After 43 years of performance as the Bellevue Philharmonic Orchestra, the orchestra was shut down in 2011 due to the severe economic downturn of 2008. The musicians recognized that the orchestra had served its surrounding communities well with both concerts and educational outreach programs and was at the height of its professional artistic reach when the orchestra was disbanded. To continue this legacy of excellent music making, the musicians decided to form a new professional orchestra under the name of The Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra.
