  1. 16th Annual More Music @ The Moore

Friday, March 24, Doors at 6:30 pm, Show at 7:30 pm

The 16th annual MORE MUSIC @ THE MOORE features exceptional young musicians mixing up diverse music styles. The performance celebrates the rich musical talent of youth in our community and provides musicians, regardless of what style they play, the opportunity to make music together. This program provides young artists training and rehearsal time with professional musicians, production and promotional support, and the opportunity to perform live at The Moore Theatre.

STG is thrilled to announce Grammy Award-winning musician and record producer Robert Glasper as Music Director for the 16th annual More Music @ The Moore. As Music Director, Mr. Glasper will spend a week working with local musicians ages 14-21 to provide mentorship and assist them with further developing their music performance skills. At the end of the week, Mr. Glasper will join the participants in two live performances, a student matinee and public performance, at The Moore Theatre on March 24, 2017.


  1. Arcade Lights

Fri, March 24 at 6:30 pm

Party at the most iconic Seattle location that isn’t a World’s Fair UFO on a stick: the wonderful Pike Place Market, which will be nigh-bursting with local delicacy-producers and alcoholic drinks. Prepare for crowds: last year, over a thousand people came for the high-class noshes and gorgeous view. Your ticket will provide you with unlimited food and five alcoholic drink tickets, but premium-ticket buyers will enter a half hour earlier (general admission begins at 7 p.m.). Extra-extravagant diners will want to spring for the VIP ticket, which entitles you to a private lounge from 6 p.m. on. Everybody takes home a 5-ounce glass as a memento. The vendors that have signed on so far include Bavarian Meats, Fauxmage, Hot Lips Pizza, Pike Place Chowder, Jonboy Caramels, Theo Chocolate, Fremont Brewing, Copperworks Distilling, and oh geez so many more but we are too hungry to go on. For ages 21 and up.
