Everett Chorale Current Season
Puget Sound choirs are excitedly gearing up in preparation for the return of the Seattle Sings Choral Festival, live on October 28 and 29, 2022. Following a delay from the original date in May, twenty choirs of all kinds and from across the region will present a dazzling variety of styles; from Bach to Barbershop, Finnish to jazz, Broadway to classical, symphonic size to chamber music intimacy, there is something to please every taste. As festival co-chair Scott Kovacs says, ”I can‘t imagine a time when we need choral singing more than right now, and to be returning to the Seattle Sings Choral Festival feels like good medicine for us all!“
The festival is thrilled to collaborate with Northwest composer and University of Washington choral professor Giselle Wyers. In what has become a festival tradition, the Greater Seattle Choral Consortium commissions a work especially for the festival. Dr. Wyers‘ Join in Gathering, first introduced at the Festival Online Showcase in October 2021, is her contribution as Composer-in-Residence. In keeping with this tradition, audience and choirs will join in singing a portion of this lovely piece. For more information and a complete listing of participating choirs, please visit us on the web at www.seattlesings.org (look for the “Festival” tab at the top), or you can email us at email@example.com.
The festival runs Friday evening, October 28, and all day on October 29 of 2022 at Seattle First Baptist Church. Admission is free; come and go as you please.
The GSCC is a non-profit service organization that provides advocacy, support, resource sharing, and outreach to more than 90 choirs throughout the Puget Sound region. The Everett Chorale is proud to be an active participant in this vibrant group.
