Ongoing Events


Private voice LESSONS and choir COACHINGS/WORKSHOPS, by appointment.

WRITERS' GROUPS throughout the year, with a focus on NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers' Month) each November.

Creativity Retreats for writers, composers/songwriters and visual artists who want to "get away from it all" and produce! Special retreats for November NaNoWriMo participants.

AUDITIONS are underway for a new professional a cappella vocal group. We're seeking an alto, a bass, and an additiona; soprano, for a 6-person close harmony ensemble that will perform an excitingly broad repertoire: from madrigals and classical music to jazz, pop/rock and original material. Audition by appointment. You must read music well and have excellent pitch. We'll perform throughout the region, and already have an invitation for our first concert when we're ready, based on existing personnel!

SCAI is compiling a comprehensive LIST of all artists in Washington County: musicians, actors, dancers, visual artists, writers, and multi-media artists. If you'd like to be included, send us your contact information and we'll be in touch. Listing will be free as a public service to fellow artists. If you don't already have a web presence, and would like to create something simple and affordable, we also can help with that through our site, or recommend a great colleague!


On the Drawing Board

STARRY NIGHTS on Fish Point!  Amateur astronomers take note.  Thanks to the donation of an excellent Celestron telescope, we can invite others to join us inside the "bowl of stars" that surrounds us on clear summer nights.  We're lucky to have almost no light pollution.   BYOT or use ours!   Starting summer/fall 2016.   Ask about dates, or RSVP.

TEACHING RESIDENCIES by visiting artists in music, theater, writing, visual arts, to share their knowledge and experience: these will continue through 2016 and beyond.  Watch for details or join our mailing list!
