Concert proceeds benefit music education. From 2008-2012 the beneficiary of Ten Grands Seattle proceeds was The Snowman Foundation which was created in Portland, Ore. in 1999 by composer-founder Michael Allen Harrison to “share the joy, the healing, the learning and the life-changing gifts music has to offer.” In 2013, a new chapter opened with presenting partner Seattle Symphony: proceeds now support an array of education programs of the Symphony and other community organizations. Mr. Harrison continues as artistic director. This year’s production is presented with generous assistance from sponsors: Alliance Communications, Classic Pianos, Estates Wine Room, DreamBox Learning, Mayflower Park Hotel, Neiman Marcus, RBC Wealth Management and Yamaha.
