A Full Palette of Arts and Culture
Explore the arts and cultural offerings on
and off campus
Arts and culture thrive here. Our 100+ hobby and interest groups include beloved favorites and pleasant surprises. Here, you can join a choir or drama group as easily as you can join a collection of ukulele players or belly dancers. There’s no limit to what you can do; in fact, you’re free to organize and run your groups as you wish. At Panorama, activities and schedules aren’t set in stone. Our only constant is unbridled access.
The arts are so important here that Panorama and its residents planned, financed and built the state-of-the-art Panorama Auditorium in 2009. With 206 spacious seats, this auditorium presents a wonderful selection of concerts, theatrical performances, guest speakers and engaging Learning in Retirement Lectures. Our free Monday Night Programs draw some of the finest talent in the region, including ballroom dancers, concert pianists and jazz, folk and rock bands. The stage is never dark, with an endless array of productions, rehearsals, and workshops for residents to explore and expand their own talents. Not a performer? Enjoy your seat in the audience at any number of these events.
Off-campus, Panorama is surrounded by arts and culture. Our Lifestyle Enrichment program coordinates a wide array of ventures, including performances, hiking trips, lectures, and community events. One of our preferred off-campus venues is The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, which offers a full season of performances by national and international touring groups, including music, dance, theater and family entertainment. At the end of any performance, you’ll often find the Panorama bus waiting at the theater’s front entrance, ready to greet our residents boarding for a 15-minute ride home. Panorama’s location in western Washington makes it ideal for taking advantage of the cultural offerings of Seattle and Tacoma to the north and Portland, Oregon, to the south.
