Seattle Sings Choral FestivalJoin in Gathering
The Seattle Sings Choral Festival is live once again!
Puget Sound choirs are excitedly gearing up in preparation for the return of the Seattle Sings Choral Festival, live on Saturday, October 29. Eighteen 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, audiences 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The festival runs Saturday, October 29, 10:00 AM to 9:10 PM at Seattle First Baptist Church, 1111 Harvard Ave, Seattle 98122. Admission is free; come and go as you please. All audience and choir members are requested to remain masked while attending the festival.
