Marion Oliver McCaw Hall opened in June 2003 as a $127 million renovation of the Seattle Opera House, made possible by a partnership between the Hall's two world-class resident performing arts tenants, Pacific Northwest Ballet and Seattle Opera, Seattle Center and the Seattle Center Foundation. This partnership secured $55 million in public funds and over $72 million in private philanthropic gifts to make the Hall a reality. The Hall is owned by the City of Seattle and operated by Seattle Center, in accordance with a unique 25-year Operating Agreement with its resident tenants, which provides them with on-going oversight and shared responsibility for its operations and budget.
McCaw Hall includes the state-of-the-art 2,900-seat Susan Brotman Auditorium, the 380-seat Nesholm Family Lecture Hall, Prelude Café, elegant lobbies fronted by a luminous five-story serpentine glass wall, two beautiful donor/special function rooms, and a 17,800-square-foot public plaza (the Kreielsheimer Promenade) that serves as an entry into McCaw Hall and the Seattle Center campus. Designed by local architectural firm LMN, the Hall's design emphasizes elegance balanced with flexibility and functionality. Its open, airy lobbies strive to minimize the separation between exterior and interior, inviting the community to view and join the anticipation of audiences prior to a performance. As well, the Hall incorporates a number of environmentally sustainable design features which minimize its use of resources, waste generation and carbon footprint.
Each year the Ballet and Opera present approximately 150 performances in McCaw Hall. In addition, the Hall hosts two productions of the Seattle Men's Chorus annually, as well as a wide range of popular music concerts, lectures, corporate meetings, receptions, weddings, festival performances, and community and non-profit events.

Forgotten Dogs is a foster home based rescue organization located in Washington State.
Who We Rescue
Over and over, dogs are abandoned at shelters only to live out their lives in a kennel, being passed by time and time again until their time finally runs out. Through no fault of their own, these dogs aren’t adopted because they have something “wrong” with them: the “wrong” color, the “wrong” look, the “wrong” age, and most commonly, the “wrong” breed. These are the dogs we save.
Even worse is when a dog isn’t even taken to the shelter. Some are abandoned outside of town. Some exist on the end of a chain or are otherwise neglected or abused. These are the dogs we save.
Sometimes it’s the dog’s owner who is down on their luck and can no longer afford to care for their dog, but want to ensure he or she goes to a loving, forever home. These are the dogs we save.
These dogs can be any breed, but we primarily focus on Pit Bulls and other bully breeds. They are the ones most likely to die in shelters, and the ones who need an advocate to ensure they don’t end up in the wrong hands.
We save the dogs that need help the most, the dogs whose time has run out, the dogs who have lost all hope—the forgotten dogs.
Once a dog enters Forgotten Dogs Rescue, we’re committed to it for life. Our dogs live in private foster homes where they receive love and attention and learn to be wonderful members of the family. They receive all necessary medical care, no matter the cost. If they come to us with behavioral issues, we invest in training. No matter what, we are committed to do whatever is necessary to make them adoptable and find them amazing forever homes. And if at any point an adoption doesn’t work out, we will always welcome the dog back into our program.
We make a promise to all of our dogs that they will never again be forgotten.
Sad Beginnings, Happy Endings
Although most of our dogs have sad beginnings, they all have happy endings!
We strive to place our dogs in the best possible homes for them, taking into account the needs and requirements of both the dog and the adopter.
Rainy Camp is a song filled weekend celebrating the joy of singing together. All Singers are welcome; from beginner to professional.
Space is limited and costs are nominal for a weekend that you will not easily forget.

Since our inaugural year, MOR has presented two mainstage concert programs annually at Seattle's Benaroya Hall, marking the anniversary of Kristallnacht (The Night of Broken Glass) each fall, and Holocaust Remembrance Day each spring.
Introduced by Mina Miller, these mainstage programs combine serious vocal and chamber music with works in popular cabaret and traditional folk styles. Music from the Holocaust era is balanced with contemporary, Holocaust-inspired compositions.
In our first decade, we presented nine commissioned premieres of Holocaust-inspired works and seventeen world premieres, and produced four CDs. In December 2008, MOR toured to Los Angeles, presenting the California premiere of our commission by composer Jake Heggie, For a Look or a Touch.
Sparks of Glory, MOR's musical witness outreach series, is presented free to the public each season, and attracts an audience largely new to chamber music and this musical legacy. Thanks to our commitment to rediscovering forgotten works by Holocaust-era musicians and to performing contemporary pieces and commissions, Sparks of Glory has been funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and Chamber Music America. These 90-minute concerts-with-commentary form the heart of MOR's educational outreach program, which reaches almost 2,000 high school and college students annually in the greater Seattle area.
