The Ensign Symphony & Chorus fills a unique space in the panoramic performing arts scene of the Puget Sound region. Nearly 200 singers and instrumentalists perform a broad repertoire of joyous music in the tradition of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, BBC Symphony Chorus and Westminster Symphonic Choir. Ensign’s mission is to bless and uplift audiences in the greater Puget Sound region through professional quality performances of inspiring sacred and secular music.

Led by Steve Danielson and Chase Chang, rigorously auditioned Ensign musicians (many with their own impressive soloist credits) infuse life-long university, church, and community ensemble training with a passion that is profoundly moving. Concerts for Ensign Symphony & Chorus are held in Seattle’s world-class Benaroya Hall. Auditions for the Symphony & Chorus are open to any who wish to share their talents to support the mission of the organization.

All members of Ensign Symphony & Chorus are volunteers including the Board of Directors, the Presidency, and musicians. Ensign Symphony & Chorus is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
