For the general public: there is a waiting room that will take anyone
to a YouTube Live page to watch the identical daily performances and

The waiting room for the general
public is accessible from the SPAH Website CONVENTION
tab or using this link: spah.org/spahweek. Please share this link with anyone
who you think may enjoy the shows!
SPAH organisation intends to save the daily videos on the SPAH YouTube channel
after they are shown during
SPAH Week, so you can watch at another time if it is more convenient,
or if you just want to watch it all again!
Stay tuned to www.SPAH.org
and the SPAH Facebook
site for further details.
While all are welcome to join the SPAH convention event for the entire
show at no cost, we ask each attendee to consider a recommended
donation of $20

help our artists during this difficult time. You can contribute to the
SPAH Week 2020 fund by going to https://www.spah.org/content.asp?contentid=156
or using PayPal.me/SPAHWeek
. All funds donated before
noon on Sunday August 16th will go to our performers and teachers, so
please give generously.
