Rainbow City plays great music with an uplifting purpose

We're not just here to make amazing music in a supportive environment for all people, we're here to uplift and reflect our diverse community! We have the most inclusive ensembles in Seattle for musicians to learn and exhibit themselves through their art and to make the world a better place.

Want to contribute to Rainbow City?

You can help us to carry out our social justice mission to create safe spaces for queer and allied musicians to present the music of marginalized artists. With your help, we will keep our community strong!


You can make as big impact with a bit of your time. We need volunteers both for performances and also key staff roles. You don't need to be playing an instrument to have an impact. Join our team!
