Museum Seeks Music-Minded Teens

EMP guitarsDo you love music, especially the local music scene, and want to get involved without picking up a guitar?  Experience Music Project is currently accepting applications for their 2014-2015 Youth Advisory Board.  What can you do as a member of the Youth Advisory Board?

  • Screen and discuss Sound Off! submissions
  • Assist at events like Bumbershoot, Sound Off! and more
  • Help develop EMP’s youth and teenager outreach and programming
  • Help spread the word about EMP’s programming to Seattle
  • Get an inside peek at museum exhibits and special events
  • Participate and network on The Soundboard—EMP’s online community devoted to the NW’s all-ages music and arts scene

Applicants must be willing to attend twice-monthly board meetings, serve for nine months, be high school-aged (14-18), and of course, love music and want to share your enthusiasm.

Recent EMP events have included a surprise Macklemore performance, a visit from the Iron Throne, and this fall, EMP will host multiple concerts as part of Decibel Festival.

At the library, you can find tons of cds in all musical genres.  You also get three free mp3s per week from Freegal, that are yours to keep.   Check it out!
