About the Ticket Supplier: Thalia Symphony Orchestra

The Thalia Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1948, making it one of the oldest community orchestras in Seattle. The name Thalia comes from the muses of ancient Greece. The muse Thalia presided over comedy and lyric poetry. With this inspiration in mind, Thalia Allied Artists was founded in 1949, primarily to produce opera. The name was significant to them as it refers to the great variety of art involved in opera and shows loyalty to the Greco-Roman ideals of artistic excellence. The organization included an orchestra needed to support operatic productions, which they named Thalia Symphony.
