THE NW DISTRICT COUNCIL
The Northwest District Council is an organization of
vibrant neighborhood groups working hard to keep this district a great
place to work, play, visit, and live. The efforts of our active local
neighborhood councils make living here the best it can be, ensuring neighborhood
schools, libraries, parks, roads, utilities, and other amenities are maintained
and enhanced for the health, safety, and enjoyment of all. The NW District
Council works with other Districts, the City of Seattle, and state and
regional entities to make life better for everyone. For more information

NOW PLAYING AT THE TAPROOT
"Bach at Leipzig"
Leipzig, 1722. Germany’s most renowned music director is dead at the keyboard.
As the country’s greatest organists descend to vie for the job, melodies
of rivalry, trickery and blackmail compose a fugue of plots and counterplots.
Rooted in history but reveling in flights of fiction, Bach at Leipzig
is deliciously scored with wild and witty revelations

May 17 – June 15 at Taproot
“Imagine the Marx Brothers and Tom Stoppard collaborating on a play,”
wrote the Milwaukee Sentinal.
