Be part of SHAK's theater programs, camps, and Early Music Youth Academy

Support our autumn season, including Piae Cantiones and a collaboration with Seattle Early Dance!

"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.

Join us! Thank you for being part of our community.

Thank you for your support of this program!

Highlights from 2016-17

The Early Music Youth Academy welcomed more than 50 guests to our November concert presentation and opened for EMG's presentation of the Baltimore Consort in April on the stage of the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall. For our theatrical project, Handel's Serse, we expanded to two public performances at the Good Shepherd Chapel. We returned to historical arts camps for children -- where SHAK began! -- in April 2017.

Highlights from 2015-16

SHAK students performed 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. Our play about the life and highly musical times of Galileo was a great success!
