ABOUT CHOIR! CHOIR! CHOIR!: https://choirchoirchoir.com/
WHAT IS CHOIR?

Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (AKA “DaBu”) started Choir! Choir! Choir! as a weekly drop-in singing event in February 2011. Equal parts singing, comedy, and community-building, the night unfolds like a dream: you get a lyric sheet at the door, DaBu teaches you the vocal arrangement, and a video is recorded. Everyone has a ball and goes home feeling great!

BEN HUNTER & JOE SEAMONS: https://www.benjoemusic.com/

Local Seattle artists - “Ben Hunter and Joe Seamons aren’t so much a throw-back to the music of the pre-war era songster tradition as they are alchemist-shamans, seemingly sent from those times to the 21st century to wake us up to the music that is embedded deep within us. It is our national heritage. They have been the same wide-eyed children caught by the magic of the songs they learned from their elders. They have grown to be today’s songsters.”​ – No Depression

opening set at 7:30pm

BASIC VENUE INFO:

Open seating except reserved front rows.

(Email boxoffice@fremontabbey.org with questions)

We are an all ages venue.
Kids 10 & under are free at Abbey Arts events.**

Please refrain from talking or texting during the show

No cameras with audible shutters or audible sounds allowed.



OTHER UNUSUAL EVENT DETAILS:

SEATING:
To create a "giant living room" effect we offer an unusual concert experience with informal seating on the floor up front surrounding the stage and lots of pews, benches, and chairs around the space.

We highly recommend you bring blankets and cushions to create a more comfortable experience whether sitting on the floor or seats. Quiet and non-messy snacks/picnics are allowed. No outside alcohol please.

For best sound, arrive early for center floor area and any area on stage not marked with signage. You can also sit all around the back of the stage if you like but sound will be a bit limited there.

QUIET POLICY:

Please actually silence all devices. Turn off vibrate, rings, etc.
If you need your phone on vibrate for specific reasons, please keep it close to you and not on a hard surface that will distract your neighbor.

If arriving late, please be advised that ushers may hold doors during each song due to acoustics of the space.


NO CAMERAS WITH MECHANICAL SHUTTERS (This goes for Press too unless approved to shoot during applause only.) That means silent digital cameras/photos are ok but we really recommend you enjoy most of the show through your own 'retina screens'.

Anyone exhibiting loud or disruptive behavior during the event will be asked to leave.

Absolutely no talking during the performances please, this room is very live acoustically and everyone will hear you. :-)

**We are unable to provide a separate soundproof room for viewing this event. These shows are very very pin drop quiet so please consider that when deciding what ages are appropriate. No cry room available at this venue and even voices in the lobby will be heard in the concert space.
