Benaroya Hall

Audience knee bends before modest seat
To rehearsing minstrel cacophony.
Backstage though maestro and cellist guest fleet
Enter they stately amid symphony.
Nocturnal-esq senses now orchestrate
Alan Hovhaness’ cello concerto
Rapt as Janos Starker skills navigate
Opus seventeen number one alto.
Yet hands with no lesser gifted talent
Assembled this hall humble of music
Having satisfaction in its advent
And recognition being intrinsic.

Loud accolades praise artists who fill it.
Louder still what inspired to build it.
