Front Row buyers will be able to submit questions in advance for the Q&A portion, to be asked by an interviewer following the show.

Topeka has enjoyed growing success since its inception, allowing artists and fans to connect face-to-face via live interactive video. By offering scheduled, moderated two-way Hang Sessions between artist and fan, Topeka creates the opportunity to form personal relationships via mini-concerts, private lessons and listening parties, group Q&As, workshops, serenades and more.

Each Hang Session supports Topeka’s partnership with Circles Morningside, the Atlanta-based chapter of Circles USA. Their 12-week Apprenticeship Program works with members in developing “life systems” while preparing them for full time employment opportunities with Topeka. More on Circles USA HERE.
