ALCA-Seltzer Series: Online Relief from the Headaches of Social Distancing!

Plop, plop, fizz, fizz ...

They include songs, theatre, studio tours, workshops, concerts ... a range of activities that reflects what the Arts Center has provided and will provide again once the COVID-19 pandemic has passed.

Your latest "doses" of ALCA-Seltzer:

Emily Mitchell with her song Heed the Signs

Tupper Lake's own singer/songwriter Emily Mitchell, who has come out with a brand-new album, with a sample of her genre-bending music done especially for the Arts Center! After graduating with a music-industry degree from the College of Saint Rose, Emily moved to Brooklyn to pursue a career in music publishing. She has a diverse sound that came out of folk rock but has also been heavily interested by the pop/rock genre. Here is a link to a recent review of Emily's latest single : Here is the link to her Spotify : The link to her Facebook : The link to her Instagram:


Alex Smith (& son) with his song Colorado

In a video made just for the Arts Center, Long Lake singer/guitarist Alex Smith (of Brillhart & Smith) performs his song Colorado from his home in Vermont - with his adorable son as his audience! Alex and fiddler Jake Brillhart will be performing as part of our ALCA-Seltzer Streams coming up in October 2020. For more about Alex and his music, and to see a video of Brillhart & Smith, go to
