The Spokane Symphony seeks to engage new and/or underserved audiences where they live by presenting programs that stimulate enthusiasm for orchestral and instrumental music. The orchestra, ensembles and individuals will do this by giving concerts and interactive presentations of music that is familiar to a wide range of the community and that represent the diversity of cultures among us.
Spokane Symphony Music Director James Lowe gives the “LoweDown”--an in-depth preview—on the Masterworks he conducts, on the Thursdays prior to the concerts. They will be held at F1RST Avenue Coffee, 1011 W. 1st Avenue, across from Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.

The Spokane Symphony arranges for available guest artists to lead master classes for advanced music students. Students, who are selected by audition, have the opportunity to work with a world class artist and gain feedback from a professional adjudicator. By making Master Classes open to the public, it gives attendees insight into the technique required to play the instrument as well as the personality of the artist.
