Spokane Symphony announces free ‘Out & About’ concert series

Spokane Symphony

SPOKANE, Wash. — If you want to catch the Spokane Symphony live but haven’t gotten tickets yet, then here’s your opportunity to catch a show for free!

The Spokane Symphony is having several free concerts, but they won’t be held in a regular orchestral setting. Instead, the symphony will be performing at local cafes, restaurants and community centers as part of its “Out & About” series.

The shows are scheduled for May 18-20 and May 27. Each concert will be about 45 minutes long in a relaxed setting, performed by a small group of two to five Spokane Symphony musicians.

Spokane Symphony Music Director James Lowe has designed these concerts to be “an espresso shot of the classics.”

“People might think there’s something mysterious or forbidding about live classical music, so I’m happy that these ‘Out & About’ gigs take our talented musicians out of The Fox Theater and into the community where people can just stumble upon them and have a great time,” Lowe said.

If you’re interested in attending, here’s where to catch the free concerts:

May 18 – 5:30 p.m. at First Avenue Coffee, 1011 W. First Avenue, downtown Spokane

May 19 – 7:00 p.m. at The Mason Jar, 101 F Street, Cheney

May 20 – 5:00 p.m. at Slightly Charred Wood Fired Pizza, 816 W. Sprague Avenue, downtown Spokane

May 27 – 6:30 p.m. at The Carl Maxey Center, 3114 E. 5th Avenue, East Central Spokane
