LOCATION: Built in 1906 on the traditional homeland of the Duwamish people, the Chapel Performance Space is on the fourth floor of the Good Shepherd Center, located in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood at 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N (just south of 50th St., eight blocks west of I-5 and one block east of Meridian). It is near to the University, Fremont, Meridian/Tangletown, and Green Lake areas, with many restaurants and bars within easy walking distance on 45th St. in Wallingford (two blocks south) and 55th St. in Tangletown (six blocks north). The building is set back off the street, surrounded by an old apple orchard that is now Meridian Park.
PARKING: There are large on-site parking lots on the north and south sides of the building. Parking is free. There is also street parking. THIS AREA IS HIGH RISK FOR CAR PROWLS! DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR!
NEARBY BUS STOPS: #44 stops at 45th & Sunnyside (walk three blocks north on Sunnyside or Corliss); #62 stops on Meridian at 49th & 46th Streets (enter through park on Meridian mid-block or on the SE corner of 50th & Meridian, or walk one long block east on 50th or 46th to Sunnyside). The #26 also stops about five blocks east of Sunnyside, at Latona & 45th or 50th Streets.
ACCESSIBILITY: The building is wheelchair accessible. Outside the main entrance there is a ramp under the front steps to the ground floor, and inside to the right is an elevator that goes to the Chapel.
BRINGING CHILDREN: This is an all-ages venue, and we want young people who attend Wayward Music events to feel welcome here. But parents should keep in mind that much of the music we present can be very quiet or very loud, is often rather abstract, and sometimes goes on for a long time without a break. If you would not feel confident taking your child to the symphony or a chamber music concert, then this might not be appropriate for them. If you do bring small kids, we suggest sitting on an aisle or near the rear exit so you can slip out easily if needed. If you need a place to have some quiet time with your child, there is a waiting area with chairs on the third floor. Thanks for your consideration.
