Musical Benefit for Washington Hall – March 29, 2014
Join Historic Seattle for a not-to-be-missed benefit concert featuring performances by four generations of the legendary Holden Family, a dynasty of Seattle jazz and music, and special guests The Teaching featuring Evan Flory Barnes, Josh Rawlings, and Jeremy Jones. Proceeds will go to restoring this 106-year-old historic building to its former glory and re-activating it as a vibrant community gathering place for arts and culture.
With a new roof, seismic stabilization of the south wall, refinished floors, and funds to build an elevator secured, we’ve entered the final phase of the campaign. We need to raise $2.2 million by June 2014 to continue the renovation. In addition to fully restoring the Main Hall and Lodge Room to their original condition, the full rehabilitation of Washington Hall will include renovating the former Danish settlement house in the western third of the building. Once home to immigrants of all backgrounds, these spaces will become offices for Hidmo, 206 Zulu, Voices Rising and other community organizations, classrooms and meeting rooms, a recording studio, and cafe.
