the stage is set for young musicians
The 815 provides a unique opportunity for young musicians to perform monthly. All ages through 21, all forms of music, and all instruments are welcome.
There is no fee to participate or attend.
See our Monthly Performances tab for dates and monthly themes.
Our performances are held at The Forge at 22 West Cass Street in downtown Joliet. You can learn more about The Forge right here. Due to COVID-19, we have moved our Sep 2020 date to an outdoor venue and anticipate that the rest of the 2020 dates will be held virtually via Facebook Live.
The goal of The 815 is to teach young performers about performing, performance etiquette, working together and supporting each other as artists, as well as to challenge them as musicians.
