ChoralSounds Northwest (CSN) is a Burien-based mixed chorus, under the baton of Artistic Director Dr. Ryan Ellis, that offers the fun of singing traditional choral music as well as new arrangements with a decidedly theatrical style. A friendly, cohesive group of dedicated musicians who are drawn together by their love of choral singing, CSN offers a musical home to singers who want to experience the fun and camaraderie of singing and performing with a professional group. CSN concerts are much more than typical choral concerts. Sets, costuming, lighting, choreography and drama all combine for fun-filled, theatrical shows.
CSN Rehearses on Tuesdays 7-9:15pm at Glendale Lutheran Church in Burien.

SilverSounds Northwest (SSN), under the direction of Paula Hawkins, is a mixed chorus of mostly retired folks from around South King County who believe that “You're never too old to rock and roll!”
This fun loving group presents their annual Mainstage show at the Highline Performing Arts Center at 3pm on April 9, 2017, which will feature clever themes and narration, sets, light costuming, choreography, humor and hi-jinks. Most singers are involved in more than singing, as they entertain audiences with dancing, acting and solos. This fun-filled group performs regularly around the community.
