Perfect night on Puget Ridge! This was the second of four Monday nights for the relocated Music Under the Stars events at the Seattle Chinese Garden on the north side of the South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) campus. The grassy space north of the garden’s iconic courtyard proved to be a perfect setting for the live half-hour recital preceding the broadcast audio from the Seattle Chamber Music Society‘s Benaroya Hall concert. The recital is performed by student musicians, tonight an excellent quartet from the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra:
We recorded them performing Haydn‘s String Quartet #1, Opus 77. They were scheduled to return during the broadcast intermission with a Schubert piece. Admission is free and you are welcome to bring family, friends, neighbors, a picnic dinner, and stay for as little or as much of the event as you want. You have two more chances, July 15 and 22, mini-recital at 7:30 pm, live broadcast at 8. This map of the SSC campus shows where to find the garden.
