The Listening Room
Open your ears to the exciting new sounds at the Listening Room, hosted at the Lark. This venue originated as just a space for locals to jam on their own instruments without a care in the world. Since then, it evolved, and it is now a nationally known venue as it puts on 12 shows a year. Some of these acts include the top talent in the country, even some that have won Grammy Awards. This nonprofit hosts acts on the weekend throughout the school year, and gives back to its community by featuring a local artist at every show.
