Seattle Orchestra

There's nothing like enjoying a rousing orchestra performance, and you don't have to be at the concert hall to catch an amazing show. Staying home and staying safe doesn't have to mean missing out on listening to talented musicians. Our brokers have searched the globe to find seven orchestras and operas from around the world that are offering free online performances during these times.

  1. Seattle Symphony Orchestra
    Long a popular choice for a night on the town near Seattle homes for sale, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra was one of the first to offer free shows online. Their YouTube channel is packed with clips of songs from the best live performances of the 2020 season and years past, along with quick trips behind the scenes to show what orchestra life is like. If possible, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra will also be streaming live concerts on certain dates, so check back often to see when you might catch a full-length live performance. On the Seattle Symphony Orchestra website, meanwhile, you'll find a huge collection of encore performances, recordings, and "behind the stage" videos to enjoy.

holiday sparkles

With Thanksgiving and its turkey now just a memory, we're firmly in the thick of the holiday season. December's ticking away at a rapid clip, but before you get mired in a tangle of tinsel, gift wrapping or kransekake baking, have some fun first! There's so much going on this time of year it's hard to choose. Here are a few ideas we just couldn't resist.

Portlanders really know how to get into the spirit, or should we say spirits, this time of year? At the  Holiday Ale Festival in downtown Portland, nearly 50 craft brews and ciders will be on tap, along with food, merchandise and more (Dec. 4-8). On the other hand, what could be more fun than 300 tubas gathered together in Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square to play Christmas carols and other seasonal songs at Tuba Christmas (Dec. 14)? You'll see more than three ships go sailing by at this year's Christmas Ships Parade, where for two weeks fleets of festively decorated vessels will cruise the Willamette and Columbia Rivers, much to the delight of the onshore crowds (Dec. 5-22). A trip to the zoo is family fun any time of year, but ZooLights at the Oregon Zoo ups the ante with a display of more than 1.5 million bulbs that turn the animal kingdom into a magical wonderland (through Jan. 5). Seattle has its Candy Cane Lane, but Portlanders head to Peacock Lane, where residents there have been festooning their Tudor-style homes in holiday garb since the 1930s. Drive through or park nearby and stroll at your leisure. Free hot chocolate and cider will be on hand, though a donation is appreciated (Dec. 15-31).

In Bend, there's an interesting onstage sequel to Pride and Prejudice, the Jane Austen classic, in Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, presented by the Cascades Theatrical Company. Set two years after the original novel and focusing on middle sister Mary, the play has been called "an unstuffy, highly entertaining and warm-spirited work," by the Chicago Tribune (through Dec. 15). In the Old Mill District, local choirs sing their hearts out and fill the air – and shops and restaurants in the outdoor mall – with holiday spirit (through Dec. 21). The Old Mill District is also the site of the annual menorah lighting in celebration of Hanukkah, with music, food, Hanukkah gelt (chocolate coins) and more (Dec. 22). Pack up the kids and head to Gingerbread Junction at Sunriver Resort, where amazing candy and cookie creations have been dazzling holiday visitors for nearly a quarter century (Dec. 6-Jan. 4).

The Teddy Bear Suite at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle is an annual holiday pleasure for kids and parents alike. But heads up: If you plan to visit the teddy bear wonderland on the weekend, be prepared for a lengthy wait in line (through Dec. 26). In Bellevue, it's a party every day on Snowflake Lane, where a nightly parade of holiday characters, dancers, lighted floats, falling snow – even Santa as the 12th Man – enliven the sidewalks between Bellevue Square and Lincoln Square (through Dec. 24). After the parade, sashay over to the ice rink, strap on your skates and enjoy more than 9,000 square feet of real ice. Can't skate? Don't worry; free skating lessons are available or you can take a two-week class for $40 (through Jan. 20). Area green-thumbers are in for a seasonal treat at the Garden d'Lights, the annual holiday extravaganza of more than half a million twinkling lights shaped like plants, flowers, birds and more on view at the Bellevue Botanical Center (through Dec. 31). See you there!
