Upcoming Events


Join us for OPEN SINGING - coming up 9/17, 10/15, 11/12, 12/17

Open Singing at Play House is a regular, open gathering of singers of all ages and abilities. We work on 4-5 songs each session, drawn from different folk singing traditions. Sessions are drop-in with no further commitment; this is purely an opportunity to sing in harmony with others. Songs are taught by The Hinterlands and partners, rotating guest singers, and other participants. Open Singing at Play House is free of charge.

  • No musical training is required.

  • Children are welcome, if accompanied by an adult.

  • If you have questions or any accessibility needs, contact us at info[at]thehinterlandsensemble[dot]org

We’re moving to a once-a-month format this month, with sessions held the second Tuesday evenings of the month from 7-9PM at Play House (12657 Moran Street). [NOTE: August 20th’s Open Singing session previously advertised here has been cancelled]

Experience our immersive, playful and physical approach to accessing imagination, developing ensemble, training ourselves as performers, working with source material, and making performances at an OPEN TRAINING. No experience performing necessary; individuals with differing abilities or physical concerns welcome (but please be advised, our ramp into the space is currently under construction). Ages 18 and older. We ask attendees to please RSVP so we can communicate with you ahead of time!

Next date in September 2019! Check back for details soon.

We have a new works-in-progress series at Play House!

Experience new works of theatre, dance, and performance art while they are still in development. Working on something? Reach out to info[at]thehinterlandsensemble[dot]org.
