We enrich our community by inspiring a passion for music across generations through distinctive live performances and education. The Federal Way Symphony is proud of its role in presenting the masterworks of classical music to help the arts serve as powerful change-agents for the quality of life, culture, and the economy of local communities. We invite you to come, hear for yourself, and share in the exciting future of the ever-expanding repertoire of our fantastic ensemble.
The Federal Way Symphony continues the long tradition started in 1983 of providing music for the City of Federal Way and neighboring communities, of bringing people together to be entertained, stimulated, and even challenged by the masterworks of the art form. Every city of renown in the world boasts a symphony orchestra, and Federal Way is no exception. Our location is ideal - with a population of over 750,000 living within 20 minutes. This provides incredible opportunities for us to enrich the communities by providing a first-class experience for both long-time patrons of our group as well as those yet to discover our performances. We perform at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Events Center a world-class facility close to I-5 with plenty of free parking.
Through programs such as Masters and Mentors, Emerging Artists, and our Summer "Rhythm & Brews," we work to expand our outreach into our community and share the gift of music. Our goal is to present masterful presentations of classical music that will awaken an appreciation for the musical style that may lead to a further entry into the fascinating world of symphonic music. For a segment of our audience, the Federal Way Symphony will be their first experience with classical music, which we hope will lead to a lifetime of enjoyment of the genre.
