Symphony for Climate Change at Daybreak Star


On Saturday, August 17th a unique outdoor family friendly arts event will be held at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Discovery Park. The event will run from 4 pm to 7 pm.

The event includes “Symphony for Climate Change” which is a multimedia symphony created by Seattle composer and conductor Christophe Chagnard, “Earthquake” by Khambatta Dance Company, and family activities.

For details about the event see this link. For details about Daybreak Star see my preview here. I believe this will be held in the same location as the Seafair Powwow, which is in a field on the north side of the Center.

Argosy is taking their festively lit boats all over the area with choirs on board to carol for spectators on shore. Several of the stops will be at Seattle parks and the events are free. See this Parkways post for the schedule. The boats will also make stops at places other than city parks and in other cities like Tacoma, Des Moines, Kirkland, and Edmonds.
