4Culture will join the National Park Service and City of Seattle in funding the Panama Hotel Jazz Performance Extension. This program brings Panama Hotel Jazz to the Panama Hotel Tea Room every 2nd Saturday of the month until August 2016.
The Steve Griggs Ensemble will create Listen to Seattle, a program of narration and music inspired by the life and words of Chief Seattle, with support from a 4Culture Historic Site Specific Grant. The program will premiere at the Duwamish Long House in 2015 followed by free performances at historically significant sites.
The Steve Griggs Ensemble performed Panama Hotel Jazz to a sold-out crowd at Vashon Allied Arts on November 22. The performance was supported by a King County Community Engagement Grant.
