May Day! New Music Marathon @ Town Hall

Presented by Town Hall Seattle in association with Nonsequitur.

There is nothing at the Chapel today, so we suggest you go to the May Day! May Day! New Music Marathon at Town Hall (1119 8th Ave. @ Seneca), a 12-hour performer-driven celebration of contemporary music featuring 30 sets by local ensembles and soloists. Music by Seattle composers is encouraged, as are three musically inspirational “themes”: politics, pagan rituals, and calls for help in times of distress. Schedule:
