AT THE EVENT
Unlike several of the events and virtual soirées Akropolis has hosted over the last year where we've you've joined us on Zoom, this live-streamed concert will take place on a private YouTube live stream. No need for you to jump on Zoom! Just pop over to the YouTube link you received after registering or purchasing your ticket, and you'll be able to watch the show!
We will have a live-chat open during the event, so you'll have a chance to meet your fellow audience members worldwide, interact with all of the artists on the album, and chat with Akropolis throughout the performance.
We encourage you to make an event of it! Invite family and friends to purchase a ticket as well, enjoy a homemade refreshment, and log in a few minutes early on the biggest computer screen you have! However, please do limit your private YouTube link to the folks in your household, and encourage friends in other households to purchase their own ticket.
We highly encourage you to tune in with headphones or an external speaker connected to your computer, as the event will feature Akropolis performing LIVE with very high quality microphones. This will sound as good as the speakers you are using!
This live stream concert will take place at the First Presbyterian Church in Ypsilanti, MI, the very location where the album was recorded. The live stream itself will be operated by Dave Schall Acoustic.
