Kylie Odetta
Jul 9 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Indie/Soul Singer-Songwriter, Kylie Odetta, is lighting a fire within the underground music scene. With music that is powerful, dreamy, and full of passion she uses the piano & raspy vocals to draw you in. By incorporating elements of studio magic yet keeping the instruments organic, her music will take you on a mellow but all-inspiring journey. Kylie has been called an old soul and penned over 200 songs. Her southern roots make for a unique twist in her vocal character as she emits an iconic sound that is both refreshing and original and emotional. You might call her an indie artist but with hints of jazz, soul and pop influences.
Kylie O has become a seasoned performer as she has carried the big stage solo having had the opportunity to open for music artists Gavin DeGraw, Colbie Callait, Mat Kearney, Austin Mahone and Kelly Pickler as well as 100’s of her own shows. Kylie is on a mission to share her music with others and truly connect with people through the lyrics. She notes that people and everyday life and the emotions that we all feel inspire her. “My goal is to create art that moves people deep inside their souls, brings love to light, & enhances the beauty and power of emotion”. (Kylie Odetta)

James and the Giant Peach- Sensory Friendly @ Elm Street Cultural Arts Village
Jul 11 @ 10:00 am
James and the Giant Peach- Sensory Friendly @ Elm Street Cultural Arts Village

Based on the story by Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach follows a boy on an epic journey. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach… and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.

Sensory accommodations are balanced with preserving the genuine experience desired by all children and families.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this performance, please call 678.494.4251 or email siobhan@elmstreetarts.org.
