Benaroya Hall Seating Chart

The Benaroya Hall has two auditoria; the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium, which has a capacity for 2500 patrons, and the smaller Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, with seating for 536. Large-scale concerts and performances by the Seattle Symphony take place in the The S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium. The Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, on the other hand, is used for a range of smaller-scale performances, from solo recitals, to Symphony Kids and Tiny Tots concerts.

The main auditorium features gorgeous acoustics and incredible architecture. From the coffered ceiling panels, dark woods and clear sightlines, every aspect of the interior is designed to give audience members the best possible audio and visuals, from anywhere in the hall. Your seating options are spread across 4 floors; the Orchestra, Founder’s Tier, Second Tier, and Third Tier. Restricted view seats, though few, are clearly labelled when booking your ticket. Despite its size, the unique architecture and acoustics of the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium guarantee an intimate and personal experience.
