Announcing the FINAL SEASON of Tuning the Air
The countdown: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
September 21, 2011
Thursday nights, from October 6 through December 15, will be your final opportunities to experience Tuning the Air, which the Seattle Times has called “magical notes around the circumference of Fremont Abbey” and “one of the most dreamily immersive acoustic experiences you can have in Seattle.” This season will mark the completion of seven years of Tuning the Air; a total of 225 performances for this constantly evolving production.
In 2005, Tuning the Air began in the intimate and homey setting of the Seattle Circle Performance Studio on the 3rd floor of Trinity Church in Ballard, ten guitarists in a circle and the audience lounging on pillows and cushions on the floor in the center. The company honed their craft and developed this thoroughly unique multi-dimensional production. In late 2007, Tuning the Air briefly moved to the more traditional theatrical setting of the Capitol Hill Arts Center. Finally, in early 2008, the production found a home in the newly renovated Fremont Abbey Arts Center; for the first eighteen months in the downstairs Café space, and since 2009 upstairs in the breathtaking Great Hall.
There may be only 10 final shows, but it “ain’t over till it’s over!” During the summer break there has been all kinds of activity, and for this season the team has put together a set of entirely new music, ranging from uniquely “Tuning the Air” takes on familiar songs to original compositions written specifically for this group. A number of guest artists and other surprises are in the works. And, as always, we will be taking full advantage of the 360-degree experience that only performance in the circle can create.
THIS IS (seriously) YOUR LAST CHANCE. Come join us. Bring a friend.
