I discovered "The Abbey" while on my daily walk one day. I took a flyer, saw that a musician I liked was performing at something called "The Round" that month, attended and was hooked! I said then and will say now that The Abbey is the best place in Seattle for experiencing music. It is a lovingly restored venue with great acoustics and the staff and volunteers make this unique place a wonderfully personal and welcoming place to be. The musical shows are just the beginning, as I discovered. Artwerks supports local musicians, poets, dancers, and painters, both established and emerging; supports other non-profits; provides a place for kids and adults to grow through learning and experiencing the arts. It is a huge asset to the community as a gathering place for people of a wide variety of backgrounds and income levels. After volunteering at just a few events I knew I wanted to join with them in furthering their mission.
