The Seattle Symphony is hosting a unique FREE festival Sunday featuring performers across the musical spectrum. It's called the "Day of Music" and includes more than 40 musical acts playing in every room at Benaroya Hall.

The day kicks off at 10:30am in the Soundbridge with numerous activities for children. The music begins at noon and will feature a variety of genres, including hip hop, a capella, jazz, indie rock and Russian and Irish folk music. For a complete schedule, click here.
