Saturday, May 2, 2020May 2, 2020, 7:30pm at Mt. Baker Theater, Bellingham, WA
Tickets: $22-35, select discounts available

Kulshan Chorus, Cantabile Chamber Choir, Kulshan Youth Choir, Sno-King Community Chorale, and orchestra join forces under the artistic direction of Dustin Willets to perform Carl Orff’s masterpiece cantata, Carmina Burana. Orff selected twenty-four poems from the medieval collection, Carmina Burana, covering a variety of familiar topics: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling, and lust. Together these poems and music describe activities along the great “wheel of life” or “wheel of fortune.” As the wheel spins, we may be uplifted in the world. But just as easily, the wheel of life may crush us. The moral is that no one of us is greater than any other, no matter their status. We should treat one another as equals, each struggling for purpose and meaning in the great wheel that is life. We belong to each other.

We learn from the creativity and imaginations of children. We watch children at play and wonder over their brilliant, inventive young minds. Music, both singing and movement, seem to flow without restraint from young children. As we close our season, we present “Flights of Fancy”, a concert that invites each of our choirs to be playful, light-hearted, imaginative set to performers sharing choral settings by some of the great composers of our day. We will sing of imaginary creatures like Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky and tell of barnyards that come to life at nighttime and swings that send a child flying and planes that spin heavenward close enough to touch the face of God. You will not want to miss this experience! And like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory may I invite you to “Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination!”

CANCELLED Concert: Across the Sea
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 2020, 7:30pm at Church of the Holy Cross, Redmond, WA
Sunday, June 7, 2020Jun 7, 2020, 3:00pm at Eastside Bahá'í Center, Bellevue, WA

Ever since the earliest days of human civilization, the ocean has captured the imagination. What is on the other side? And how can one possibly get there? Terra australis, a new work by local composer Bronwyn Edwards, our Composer-in-Residence this season, recalls those Europeans who first ventured to her native Australia, incorporating didgeridoo into the choir. Her Leonosa recounts an actual shipping vessel that took lumber from Washington to California in the 1840s. Another local composer, Michael Austin Miller, rejoices in the ancient explorers.

Of course, not all such exchanges were peaceful: Horizons, by the South African composer Peter Louis Van Dijk, movingly tells of native life that became slaughtered by European conquerors. Jaakko Mäntyjärvi’s Canticum calamitatis maritimae vividly depicts another tragedy: the sinking of the MS Estonia during a storm at sea in 1994. But rest assured that all is not dark. For example, Benjamin Britten extols St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music, who emerged from the sea. And with much lighter fare as well—particularly Across the sea from the Wailin’ Jennys—the joys of the ocean are always near.

This performance will be offered in Burien and Bellevue.

CANCELLED Concert: Rachmaninoff's Divine Liturgy — A masterpiece of Russian sacred music
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 2020, 8:00pm at St. Mark's Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: General $25, Seniors $20, Students $5, Child 6 to 10 free

Sergei Rachmaninoff composed two major a cappella choral works—the “Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom” and the “All-Night Vigil”—that displayed his Orthodox faith in a manner that was innovative and fresh. In 1910 he turned to the sacred service of his church and with amazing speed composed the monumental “Divine Liturgy.” Afterward he said, “Not for a long time have I written anything with such pleasure."

Less well-known is Rachmaninoff’s early choral work, “Concerto for Choir,” written in 1893. It was both a culmination of a great tradition and a starting point for so much of what followed in Russia. Such “concertos” were popular in the eighteenth century as additions to the Orthodox divine service.

The “Three Sacred Hymns” from the Orthodox liturgy were composed in 1983 by Alfred Schnittke. The Russian conductor Valery Polyansky had requested an a cappella work for his choir, and though at first Schnittke seemed reluctant, he apparently woke in the middle of the night and wrote down these three pieces, and handed the manuscript to Polyansky the following day. The work was only published posthumously.

Featured works:
“Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Op. 31” by Sergei Rachmaninoff
“Concerto for Choir, The Grave and Death Could Not Hold the Mother of God” by Sergei Rachmaninoff
“Three Sacred Hymns” by Alfred Schnittke

CANCELLED Concert: A Sequestered World — Love, contemplation and ecstasy behind the cloister walls
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 2020, 8:00pm at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: Advance:$25/Door:$30 /Students/youth:$15

Accustomed as we are to our bustling, secular lives, it can be difficult to imagine the richness of the world that developed behind the walls of the medieval cloister. Although they were under the absolute authority of the church, women there enjoyed an agency and self-direction that were hard to come by on the outside. Their most meaningful personal relationships and an often-profound spiritual renewal were tied to that community, and this autonomous life spawned religious practices and unique musical repertoires that are little-known today. Through their music, the MWC takes you behind the walls to experience the metaphysical landscape of the sequestered life.

We’ll meet again. Don’t know where. Don’t know when. But until we can… the Northwest Firelight Chorale is going virtual!

For more than 15 years, The Northwest Firelight Chorale has been lifting voices, hearts, and spirits of our audiences in song. We are committed to continuing to live our mission, even and especially during a global pandemic.

Enter the “We’ll Meet Again” Project! From June 13th through the 20th, we are holding an online pledge drive to support our group’s ongoing operations combined with special outreach to residents of 10 senior living communities in the greater Seattle area.

As a direct result of COVID-19 cancellations, The Northwest Firelight Chorale has lost upwards of $50,000, well over than half of our annual operating budget. Meeting our pledge drive goal will mean that we can financially survive, and continue to create and share music during this global pandemic.

Audition: Join us for our Virtual Season - No Audition Nec — Are you Craving a Choral Experience? Join us for a virtual season - NO AUDITION NECCESSARY

Because of this stubborn pandemic singing in a choir is not option. Luckily Allison Renn, Director of the Lake Washington Singers, has come up with a creative way to keep singing together. All women singers are welcome. No audition necessary.

Here is the plan:
We are putting together a mini online holiday concert with seven to ten choir songs.

We will use video software to create a virtual choir video to create a video concert.

We will release the concert on Facebook, YouTube and/or some other platform and ask for donations from our patrons.

The goal is to start August 1st and do one or two songs a month.

Safety concerns: Because of the virus we will not be able to have any face-to-face group rehearsals. All the practicing and most of the recording will be done at your own home.
Tech concerns: Don't be intimidated. Allison, and several other “Techno-savvy” singers are here to help.
Music: Allison is choosing songs for the concert that are mostly familiar and are not too complicated - 2 or 3 part harmony.
Rehearsing: You will need to learn the songs and practice your part on your own. We will have practice tracks, recordings of each part (Soprano, Alto, etc.) for each song, available to help you. We will also plan to have a few live online sectional rehearsals throughout the fall.
Cost: In order to pay for Allison and our accompanist, Keith Ruby, we are asking for a donation of $60 for the season. If you feel that you do not have the time to learn all the songs or only want to participate in a few of them then you have the option to choose only the ones you want to sing. Instead of paying for the whole season we are asking a minimum donation of $10 per song.

More details to follow: In the next few weeks, Allison will send out a list of the songs we’ll be singing and the dates she would like the songs recorded by. She will also send out detailed information on how to make those recordings.

We would love to have you join us for this creative season. Please let us know ASAP if you are interested. Please email (president@LakeWashingtonSingers.org) if you have any questions.

Because of this stubborn pandemic singing in a choir is not option. Luckily Allison Renn, Director of the Lake Washington Singers, has come up with a creative way to keep singing together. All women singers are welcome. No audition necessary.

Here is the plan:
We are putting together a mini online holiday concert with seven to ten choir songs.

We will use video software to create a virtual choir video to create a video concert.

We will release the concert on Facebook, YouTube and/or some other platform and ask for donations from our patrons.

The goal is to start August 1st and do one or two songs a month.

Safety concerns: Because of the virus we will not be able to have any face-to-face group rehearsals. All the practicing and most of the recording will be done at your own home.
Tech concerns: Don't be intimidated. Allison, and several other “Techno-savvy” singers are here to help.
Music: Allison is choosing songs for the concert that are mostly familiar and are not too complicated - 2 or 3 part harmony.
Rehearsing: You will need to learn the songs and practice your part on your own. We will have practice tracks, recordings of each part (Soprano, Alto, etc.) for each song, available to help you. We will also plan to have a few live online sectional rehearsals throughout the fall.
Cost: In order to pay for Allison and our accompanist, Keith Ruby, we are asking for a donation of $60 for the season. If you feel that you do not have the time to learn all the songs or only want to participate in a few of them then you have the option to choose only the ones you want to sing. Instead of paying for the whole season we are asking a minimum donation of $10 per song.

More details to follow: In the next few weeks, Allison will send out a list of the songs we’ll be singing and the dates she would like the songs recorded by. She will also send out detailed information on how to make those recordings.

We would love to have you join us for this creative season. Please let us know ASAP if you are interested. Please email (president@LakeWashingtonSingers.org) if you have any questions.
