The Fremont Abbey Arts Center’s acclaimed monthly multi-arts show, The Round, is producing its first ever Youth Round! The Round format involves three songwriters, two slam poets and two live painters sharing the stage in name of artistic collaboration. The musicians take turns playing their own works and improvising with others’ songs, often with an improv backing band. Between musical rounds, the poets perform, often with improvisation by musicians in the background. Alongside the performances, the painters work throughout the event on their canvasses. Begun in 2005, the unique show has had many youth participants but never before has the show been entirely made up of Youth. Join us in starting a wonderful tradition at The Youth Round 1 on Friday, October 7th, from 7 – 9 PM. Featuring musicians Kithkin (EMP Sound Off), Sonja Haroldson (Fremont Music School), Mads Jacobsen (STG’s More Music @ the Moore), slam poets Troy Osaki (YouthSpeaks Seattle), Raven Taylor (YSS) and live painters, Destiny King, and more.
