Seattle Symphony at The Triple Door
You only wonder what took them so long, considering they're right next to each other—jazz nightspot the Triple Door is collaborating with the Seattle Symphony on a chamber-music series. Chosen to headline the Sunday evening concerts are four SSO players: violists Mara Gearman (tonight) and Wesley Dyring (Feb. 4), and cellists Walter Gray (March 4) and new first-chair player Joshua Roman (April 29). Gearman's invited five colleagues to play sextets by Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and Strauss (the wondrous prelude to his opera Capriccio, I hope). Close on violinist Hilary Hahn's gig at the Tractor Tavern (see Friday) and the coffeehouse outreach of Rajan Krishnaswami's "Simple Measures" series, the SSO is joining the trend of musicians breaking out of the concert-hall box and taking their music to places where people like to hang out. The Triple Door, 216 Union St., 838-4333, www.thetripledoor.com. $15–$20. 7 p.m. GAVIN BORCHERT
