"We play in cities all over the place, and there isn't a program like this anywhere else," said Baltimore Consort musician Larry Lipkis after hearing SHAK's Early Music Youth Academy in action. It's thanks to you that Seattle Historical Arts for Kids is able to continue creating our programming -- and it's true, we don't know of any other group in the US or globally doing the work we do! Your gift gives students the one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn from and perform with experts in the field of historical performance.
Participant tuition pays just one-third of the overall cost of our programs. Your support is crucial in continuing our annual theater project, our year-round Early Music Youth Academy, and other programs including the children's historical-arts day camp program that was SHAK's point of origin more than a decade ago.
Please join us! Thank you for being part of our community.

Highlights from 2016-17
The Early Music Youth Academy opened for a concert by the Baltimore Consort in April on the stage of the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall. We presented two performances of our adaptation of Handel's Serse. And in the spring we returned to SHAK's roots by re-starting our historical arts camps for children!
Highlights from 2015-16
SHAK students presented a play about the life and highly musical times of Galileo, played at Saint Mark's Cathedral, opened for BBC Tudor-history star Ruth Goodman's book tour lecture, and welcomed Shakespeare's First Folio to Seattle as featured performers at the Seattle Public Library.
