What was once a federal courtroom is Sinfonietta's newest space in the City of Destiny

During the holiday season the Northwest Sinfonietta decamps from our traditional stage at the Rialto Theater for a smaller unconducted program.  The historic fourth floor ballroom in the Courthouse Square building (above the main Tacoma post office) provides a wonderful acoustic.  Audiences are seated in freestanding chairs on a first come, first served basis.  This concert hall is still in the heart of downtown, affording opportunities to gather for a meal or a drink before or after the performance.
