Recess Monkey at Duvall Days: Saturday June 1st, 1:30pm, Union Bank parking lot, 15305  Main St. Free!

Recess Monkey is the nationally acclaimed trio of elementary school teachers who make music for kids and families that truly rocks.  Known for their contagiously exciting live shows, Recess Monkey strikes a balance between kid-centric ideas and musical authenticity. Lyrically, they weave jokes and puns together with universal childhood themes, speaking to both kids and their parents with catchy, melodic songs.

“These kids’ songs are … awesome! … There are bands you can’t go wrong with, and this is one of them.” – USA Today

Make Some Noise! – Ceramic Chime Workshop

Make Some Noise!

Friday, July 13th
5:00 – 7:00PM
Northwest Art Center – 15515 Main Street NE, Duvall, WA
Free, all-ages! Materials and tools provided. Registration required via Brown Paper Tickets (click here)

Get creative with multimedia artist Rumi Koshino at Make Some Noise!, a ceramic chime workshop.

Using earthenware clay, participants will learn hand building techniques such as coil building, pinching, and hollowing to develop Japanese-influenced wind chimes. Once the structures are built, the surfaces can be decorated with underglaze. After the workshop, the chimes will be dried, kiln fired, assembled, and exhibited collectively as an outdoor installation for the Mid-Point Mash-Up (see details below). They will be returned to contributors after the event.

The Mid-Point Mash-Up
Friday, July 27th

6:00 – 9:00PM
McCormick Park – 26200 NE Stephens Street, Duvall, WA
Free, all-ages!

Come cheer on the Long Walkers on the second day of their journey and celebrate summer with residents of Duvall at the open-to-everyone exploration of place, the Mid-Point Mash-Up. Bring something for the grill – it’s a community BBQ too! And, if the sun has been shining, be sure to pack a bathing suit for an evening dip in the river.

Set in bucolic McCormick Park, this year’s Mash-Up includes unique musical theater by the Snoqualmie Floodplain Cabaret (aka the South Meadow Cabaret with performers Sari Breznau and Jed Dunkerley), the Bicycle Choir’s secularized spirituals, story-songs, Bulgarian harmonies, and early American shapenote music, Jessika Kenney and Eyvind Kang’s silhouetted reflections on travel in Zack Bent’s sculptural pop-up trailer, video projections in the park’s historic train depot by Rodrigo Venezuela, a sonorous installation of ceramic chimes by Rumi Koshino and the Make Some Noise! workshop participants, and Joyce Wong’s socially-engaged palm reading project, An Excuse to Hold Your Hand.

Both the Mid-Point Mash-Up and Make Some Noise! are made possible by 4Culture and King County Parks, with the City of Duvall Cultural Commission and the Northwest Art Center.
