Our 15th Anniversary Concert
It seems only like yesterday that we responded to a request by an organization called Arts Ballard to form a choir for an all-arts-inclusive festival in 2004. At the time there were no plans to continue, but a few people saw the need for a choir in the area and had the vision to launch what is now the Ballard community’s largest performing ensemble. We are proud and thrilled to be going strong 15 years later, and we invite you to celebrate this special milestone with us.
This will be a truly retrospective concert, all repertoire chosen by our members: their all-time favorites from over the years. We are also closing this performance in a unique way, by inviting all former members or members-on-leave to join us on stage to sing “The Awakening” by Joseph Martin, one of our very top favorite choral works (if you are interested contactdirector@MarketStreetSingers.org).
We are happy again to be performing at Seattle First Baptist Church, a venue that provides us with space and excellent acoustics. We have arranged for free parking in the adjoining lot for both concerts. Enter the lot from Seneca, Boylston, or Spring Streets. Please contact us at the email address above for any questions concerning accessibility issues.
Please note that both concerts are on the same day, May 11, with a choice of a 3:00pm matinee or 7:30pm evening performance.
We hope to see you there. Please spread the word to your family and friends.
This is a free event, but your contributions are always welcome and gratefully accepted.
Chris Vincent, Artistic Director; Ingrid Verhulsdonk, Accompanist
