We still can’t have live events in our space, but we do have this shiny new website and are adding more online programming. All our upcoming events will now go in our Event Calendar and we’re adding our past events to the calendar as an archive.
To stay updated on what we’re doing, you can subscribe to our email list, find us on Instagram, or follow our new Twitter account. Better yet, follow them all so as soon as we know what we’re doing, you can get the news from all directions. It’ll be like an information party.
For now, please enjoy these upcoming events in May.

Community Band Monthly Recording Project
1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month
You are invited to participate in this recording project! Musicians are encouraged to learn the song on any instrument and submit a recording to be mixed into the community recording. If you can’t make one or both of the meetings, you can still submit a recording!
Last month’s song was “Portrait of Mahalia Jackson”, a piece from the New Orleans Suite composed by Duke Ellington & recorded in 1970. It’s a celebratory, double-blues tribute to the great gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, who had sung with the Ellington band on a few occasions. You can hear the recording at bandcamp.
RSVP for this month’s recording project on May 5

Host Monk Turner invites songwriters of all skill levels, styles, and backgrounds to share their tracks and learn more about the craft, and feedback on your work-in-progress from a community of fellow songwriters.
