Virtual Concert Series: Sunday Sound Streams Summer, 2020
In 2012, a group of talented musicians set up their instruments in the front window of the Craft in America Center and presented a delightful evening of music. A tradition was born, and the concerts became a regular feature at the Center. With the doors to the Center temporarily closed, we’re presenting a virtual mini concert series on select Sundays at 2 p.m. throughout the summer.
Sunday, June 28, at 2pm PST
Composer/songwriter Craig Wedren (of indie rock group Shudder to Think) performs a live composition of vocal textures to create a complex and layered musical meditation.
