Central PA’s Nonprofit Center for the Arts

Whitaker Unplugged

Join us in the spring and summer of 2019 for our new 3rd in the Burg program: Whitaker Unplugged. On the third Friday of every month (beginning in March) acoustic singer-songwriters will have the chance to perform their original music in a coffee-shop-style atmosphere in our beautiful AMP Lobby.

To submit your original music for Whitaker Unplugged competitor consideration, please send samples and your bio via email to info@whitakercenter.org. Please note: as of June 2019, all Whitaker Unplugged spots for the current season are full. We plan to continue this program, so please feel free to still send in your music!

Whitaker Unplugged will motivate and recognize local singer-songwriters by providing an excellent chance to be heard – and to win. Each month, a winner will be chosen from the lineup by Harrisburg’s best – celebrities and masters of the music scene, entrepreneurs, and more. Not only will the artists get their moment to shine in front of their peers, the audience, and the judges – and of course, a chance to win a cash prize and break into the Central PA music scene with their original music.

Buy your tickets in advance for $5 or at the door for $8; a cash bar will be available inside AMP Lobby.
