The LoweDown

Learning through music.

Every Thursday at noon before a Masterworks weekend, Music Director James Lowe gives you the “LoweDown” on the music. It’s a free, fascinating, and light-hearted talk about the music. And we can’t forget the juicy gossip about the composers’ lives, music clips, visuals, and James’ quick wit! Guest musicians from the orchestra will demonstrate an aspect of the music and join in the Q&A session at the end of the hour.

The LoweDown is held at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) in the Eric A. Johnston Auditorium located at 2316 W 1st Ave, Browne’s Addition.

Lullaby Project

Bonding through music.

Partnering with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, the Lullaby Project pairs new and expecting parents and caregivers with professional artists to write and sing personal lullabies for their babies. The Lullaby Project supports mental health, aids childhood development, and strengthens the bond between parent and child. Spokane Symphony musicians provide the soundtrack for this everlasting, personalized musical gift for the families.

Sensory Friendly Concert

Experiencing through music.

Sensory-friendly concerts are designed for people on the autistic spectrum or who have any other sensory sensitivity and their families. Modifications for these concerts include relaxed house rules, reduced volume and altered lighting levels, sensory support equipment, and trained on-site volunteers. The program is also chosen with an energy profile in mind so that we start and end with calm and quiet music.

Free Family Concert

Gathering through music.

An entirely FREE concert for the whole family to come together and experience the Spokane Symphony.
