Upstage Live

Be a part of a  community experience as Upstage Live host, KHUM DJ and Music Director Mike Dronkers, guides us through an intimate evening with these outstanding creative voices.

The audience will be treated to sets from outstanding musicians, as well as a live interview with the artists as they share insight into their individual journeys of creative expression.

At the end of each interview, the guest navigates the 'kids questions': big posed by local schoolchildren who don't know their questions are posed to some of the planet's most talented artists. 

"Upstage Live is about brain catnip. We want to get people thinking by bridging the gap between creator and audience," is how Dronkers describes the event.
