 Up Close brings the stories, wisdom, artistry, and humor of Island elders to the stage.

Composer and pianist Grisha Krivchenia has teamed up with SJCT to present such stories in Friday Harbor. “I had the great privilege of writing original songs with hospice patients in Santa Fe, New Mexico and was very keen to write songs with and for my Island community, ” said Grisha.  “Our elders have powerful words to share from a lifetime of experience, and a song delivers their messages beautifully.” 

Note: parking will be limited during Saturday's matinee due to the Electric Vehicle Car Show. The circle drive and handicapped parking will be open, but please arrive early in order to find parking outside of the parking lot.
