For each performance season, we invite local, national and international musicians and performers to create new works at the Music Box Village.
They explore and develop sounds and rhythms using our musical houses, culminating in an original performance series offered to the public over the course of a night or a weekend. While performers may incorporate their own songs and instruments, this show will be unlike any other you will see from these artists. Each performance is an experiment and an adventure for artists and audiences!
Stay tuned as we announce the rest of our exciting Spring Season.
