    COVID-19 Info

    Update 8/1/2020, 5:00pm:

    August 2020:
    Abbey Arts venues are adhering to all Public Health guidelines and are not currently open.
    See Classes Calendar for updates when small classes may reopen.

    Because streaming music services are considered an essential service as described in Governor Inslee’s Safe Start, we are pleased to allow certain space usage for rehearsals and programs to create live and/or pre-recorded material for streaming, with all standard distancing and Public Health guidelines practiced at all times.

    We believe music, art and connection are as necessary as ever in this moment. This is why, in compliance with State and CDC guidelines, artists can perform their work safely in our space to connect with their fans in a time when we can really use the mental and emotional health benefits that art and music provide.

    Thank you for continuing to support artists and each other in this difficult time.
