Our story

The Kirkland Civic Orchestra is an all-volunteer classical symphony orchestra offering free concerts in the Seattle area. We perform at locations in the Eastside community and in the Seattle Area approximately four times a year.

The mission of our orchestra is to offer amateur musicians a great opportunity to play interesting repertoire forĀ our supportive audience, primarily on the eastside of Lake Washington. Our concerts are affordable and casual. We are non-profit group that exists because of the support of our audience and our members.

Our primary home is at the Northwest University Butterfield Chapel, where we enjoy a great relationship with the members of the music program. Our concerts in the chapel offer great sound, great sight, and are an affordable cultural event.

Occasionally, we play in other great settings too, including The Ballard Locks.

No matter where we are, we invite you to check the performance calendar and come out to hear some great music!
