LEAF Schools & Streets returns with EMErgence this year.  By celebrating the accessibility of music that technology provides, EMErgence: Electronic Music Experience seeks to provide a meaningful and engaging experience for youth in our local under-served community. EMErgence will feature master musicians, sound technicians and music producers both locally and nationally known, to encourage emerging young, aspiring artists from the Asheville community.

This two week experience will connect local and national musicians with young, aspiring musicians and provide them the time and space to create work, inspiring them to use technology as a means of creative expression to deepen their understanding of the electronic music industry.  From November 3-14, youth will work and create with local teaching artists at the Burton Street 1 mic studio in the Burton Street Community Center, and with a visiting artist at Asheville High School. The programming will include a collective day of mixing at Echo Mountain Recording Studio in Downtown, Asheville and a culminating showcase at the Mill Room, Friday, November 14.
