As the leaves fall and the air cools, join the ASO for a symphonic scare! We invites all ghosts, skeletons and ghouls for a frightfully fun concert featuring sinister selections like Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Saint-Saens’ Danse Macabre and the mystical music of Harry Potter! Come adorned in your most impressive Halloween costume; prizes await the attendees with the most dazzling digs! We promise we won’t trick you – it’s sure to be a treat! Register


Night out for Caring 
9/21 Looking for a fun way to give back? Want to meet other people who care about doing good in the community? Shocked to hear that Washington state is 42nd in high school graduation rates (i.e., nearly last!)? Come to the biggest, best party of the year. The Seattle Mariners and United Way of King County care about kids’ education and want to see you at Night Out for Caring on Friday, Sept. 21, at Safeco Field. You’ll enjoy food, drinks, music and fun with a few thousand do-gooders who like to have a good time. Meet some local celebrities, have plenty of instagrammable moments (like singing karaoke in Macklemore’s Cadillac) and celebrate all the awesome things going on in our community—thanks to the help of caring people like you. Plus explore Safeco Field like never before! #SeattlesNightOut 
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM PDT  Safeco Field Get Tickets Here.

Karin Stevens Dance
10/11–14

Erickson Theatre Off Broadway, Capitol Hill, 1524 Harvard Ave.; 206.329.1050; karinstevensdance.com

Seattle Latino Film Festival
10/5–13
From the dark surrealism of Buñuel to the flamboyant camp dramedy of Almodóvar, Spain’s filmmakers have been some of Europe’s most celebrated. Each year since 2009, the SLFF has focused on a different Hispanic nation, and this year Spain is showcased in its packed schedule of shorts and features. Times, prices and venues vary. 971.704.5849

A Thousand Splendid Suns
10/5–11/10
“I wanted to get beneath that kind of iconic picture of a woman in a burka walking on the street,” said The Kite Runner author Khaled Hosseini in the years right after 9/11, which led to this 2007 novel, the story of two Afghanistan women of different classes and generations whose friendship grows as the Taliban rises in power. Here, it is adapted for the stage by Irish-Indian playwright Ursula Rani Sarma. Times and prices vary. Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Center, 155 Mercer St.; 206.443.2222

Ampersand Live
10/25
Land conservancy organization Forterra is sponsoring a night of readings, music, photography and dance—sort of a stage-show version of its periodical Ampersand, or, as the nonprofit puts it, “an evening of storytelling….about nature, cities, community and critters.” Brass quartet The Westerlies, dance artist Zoe Scofield, wildlife photographer David Moskowitz and 2017 Seattle mayoral candidate Nikkita Oliver are among those scheduled to appear. 7:30 p.m. $15. The Moore Theatre, downtown, 1932 Second Ave.; 206.682.1414


Earshot Jazz Festival
10/7–11/4
Earshot sponsors performances year around, but it really piles it on for a month every autumn. Once again, organizers have planned more than 60 concerts, featuring several dozen solo musicians and ensembles, from acclaimed high school bands to free improvisers. For this iteration, there’s a special focus on women in jazz (including award-winning jazz violinist Regina Carter, Seattle composer Dawn Clement and R&B hip-hop guru SassyBlack) and on this year’s festival resident artist, pianist Jovino Santos Neto. Times, prices and venues vary. earshot.org

Urban Unveiled 
10/7/18
The annual Urban Unveiled event, held this year at the sophisticated and storied Fairmont Olympic Hotel, is more than a wedding show; it is a celebration, a cocktail party for nearly-weds and the regions most creative wedding vendors, ready to make dreams come true. This evening of elegance is a chance for brides and grooms to meet and mingle with the Urban Unveiled partners who can make nuptial visions a reality, while guests enjoy fine wines, nibble on sumptuous cuisine, indulge in to-die-for desserts. The evening ends with an amazing raffle and an awe-inspiring fashion show by the legendary Luly Yang. Times, prices and venues vary. Get Tickets Here.
