There will be no Soundwaves events until it is safe for people to gather again. As many of the artists scheduled for March, April, May, and June will be rebooked as possible once the next season can be planned.
That season will be partially supported by a grant from the Amphion Foundation. Many thanks to them.
Meanwhile, videos of past shows are available on this page, and more are on their way.
