Tickets: $12.00 per family

In our first-ever online performance, members of the choir showcase their “hidden” talents for our audience.

Like many musical organizations, our members have numerous talents and accomplishments that generally remain unknown to our audience at large. They are writers, artists, instrumentalists, singers and scholars, and they enrich our community in any number of ways beyond their appearances with the choir. Since the pandemic keeps us from meeting in person with you, and with each other, we thought this would be a good time to step out from behind the veil, and display some of the secret talents of our members. This exclusive online presentation features excerpts from literary works and performances of music from medieval to McCartney, hosted by Artistic Director Eric Mentzel.
Contributing artists include Mary Lynne Evans, Sophia Smith, Dinnen Cleary, Bill McJohn, Ellen Seibert, Candace Robb, Basha Osinski, Alice Boatright, Wendy Joseph, Erika Chang, Mary Ann Hagan, Marian Seibert, Sally Mitchell, and Michael LaGaly, all supported by videographer Ailisa Newhall, sound engineer Kevin Wyatt-Stone, and produced by the MWC’s Artistic Director, Eric Mentzel.

Concert: Behind the Veil — The Hidden Talents of the Medieval Women's Choir
Friday, December 25, 2020Dec 25, 2020, 12:00pm at Online Event (Link in description)
Tickets: $12.00 per family.

(THIS CONCERT IS AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF DECEMBER ANY TIME OF DAY (so you may overlook the only date of Christmas day pasted in above).

In our first-ever online performance, members of the choir showcase their “hidden” talents for our audience.

Like many musical organizations, our members have numerous talents and accomplishments that generally remain unknown to our audience at large. They are writers, artists, instrumentalists, singers and scholars, and they enrich our community in any number of ways beyond their appearances with the choir. Since the pandemic keeps us from meeting in person with you, and with each other, we thought this would be a good time to step out from behind the veil, and display some of the secret talents of our members. This exclusive online presentation features excerpts from literary works and performances of music from medieval to McCartney, hosted by Artistic Director Eric Mentzel.
Contributing artists include Mary Lynne Evans, Sophia Smith, Dinnen Cleary, Bill McJohn, Ellen Seibert, Candace Robb, Basha Osinski, Alice K. Boatwright, Wendy Joseph, Erika Chang, Mary Ann Hagan, Marian Seibert, Sally Mitchell, and Michael LaGaly, all supported by videographer Ailisa Newhall, sound engineer Kevin Wyatt-Stone, and produced by the MWC’s Artistic Director, Eric Mentzel.

Tickets: Free

Because we can't carol in person this 2020 holiday season, Bellevue Chamber Chorus members are teaming up for a fun collaboration featuring festive December artwork by children from both Bellevue and our larger familial circles to create an online recording of “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire.” This classic 1945 tune (also known as "The Christmas Song") from Robert Wells and Mel Tormé was popularized by Nat King Cole, and the clever and fun choral arrangement by Roy Ringwald is full of classic holiday cheer and childhood mystery, sure to bring a smile! Featuring our magnificent accompanist Kristine Anderson in full 40's pianistic style! Join us for the premiere party on our official YouTube channel or Facebook page at 7:30 pm on Tuesday 12/22.

Saturday, March 6, 2021Mar 6, 12:00pm at Online Event (Link in description)
Tickets: $35

ANNOUNCING OUR VIRTUAL CONCERT, SATURDAY MARCH 6th

In this long season with the Covid Pandemic, the Seattle Children's Chorus, like many arts organizations worldwide, has sought creative ways to keep our music alive and to keep spreading that joy with our audiences! Our next Virtual Performance "Blessing Our World In Song" will be just that!

This Virtual Performance will feature an extraordinary Massed Choir Video of our choristers and alumni performing the treasured blessing we have sung for our audiences for nearly 30 years. It has always been a very holy and personal moment of connection as our choirs surround our audiences and together deliver John Rutter's "The Lord Bless You and Keep". It is one of those "not a dry eye" concert moments. We have deeply missed blessing you in song for the past 12 months. On March 6th, SCC will come to your screen as a large singing community of youth and alumni. Have a hanky ready.

The virtual concert will also include a delightful recital of vocal soloists from among our present choristers who have been faithfully developing their vocal skills by zoom sessions throughout our quarantine. We are also pleased to be welcoming some very special guests to this concert. Our vocalists will deliver wonderful literature for solo voice: art songs, folk songs, gospel, musical theatre and more.

Please join us for this special event.

Bach, Pärt, and others, along with a new arrangement by our Artistic Director, Daniel Mahraun.

Our final of four themed virtual events for the season will take place on Sunday, April 25 on Zoom. Our events this season are open to the public, who can register for in advance at www.magnoliachorale.org.

​The monthly events will start at 6 pm with a cocktail hour, dinner making, and general merriment. At 7 pm, we will transition into the evening's music program, which will include a short history lesson on the theme of the evening, trivia (with prizes!), warm up, and group singing. Then we’ll move to learning the parts for the song for the next themed night. People can join at 6 or 7 pm, and we’ll be done by about 8:15.

Registered guests will receive the Zoom link to enjoy the festivities as well as PDFs of the music when available.
