Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

January-February shows at Kenyon Hall
Jan 21 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The January-February slate at Kenyon Hall:

Sunday, January 21, at 7:30 – Dennis James at the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ
The Master of the Wurlitzer returns to illuminate D. W. Griffith’s 1919 rural melodrama, True Heart Susie, featuring the preëminent star of the silent film era, Miss Lillian Gish. In addition to his brilliance at the organ, we’ll get a special treat when Dennis regales us about his six-year association with Miss Gish, whom he served as personal musician and silent film accompanist.

Saturday, January 27, at 7:30 – Barefoot Wonder, with Doug Deems
T Bruce Bowers and Ric Gillman are quite a pair. With almost a century of musical experience between them they bring a wide variety of flavors to the table. From Doc Watson guitar picking to blazing Led Zeppelin electric violin, it’s a banquet every time they perform. T Bruce last graced the Kenyon Hall stage with Ronny Cox, and we’re delighted to welcome him back, shod or not. This’ll be Ric’s and Doug’s first time at Kenyon. Please visit barefoot-wonder.com and dougdeems.com for more information.

Saturday, February 3, at 7:30 – The Debutones
It’s a pleasure to welcome back The Debutones, and the light hidden gems of acoustic roots-based songs they perform so well. Compelling stories, beautiful melodies—some folk, some country, and some bluegrass. Their music combines guitar, bass, violin, viola, Dobro, banjo, and vocals into an ensemble of remarkable beauty. Please visit debutones.com for more information.

Sunday, February 4, at 7:30 – Mary Flower
Mary is an internationally known picker and singer/songwriter. She’s based in Portland, where her long career continues to flourish, with four recent albums for Memphis’s famed Yellow Dog Records, and constant touring. She appeared at Kenyon Hall last year with Danny O’Keefe, and those in attendance begged her to return to do a full show. Thankfully she agreed to come back. Please visit maryflower.com for more information.

Saturday, February 17, at 7:30 – Mallet Head
Cool jazz fills the hall once again, courtesy of Seattle’s vibes wizard, Tom Collier. At each concert in the Mallet Head series, Tom brings colleagues from the professional jazz world to our stage for an evening of inventive improvisation, classy chords, and wild melodies.

Saturday, February 24 at 7:30 – Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
Seattle Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the Re-Arrangers evokes the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with its version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca’s sweet violin playing, his sense of melody, and daring improvisations.”—World Rhythm. Their repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger’s unique originals. Please visit rangerswings.com for more information.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

Story time with author Kerri Kokias @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Jan 24 @ 10:30 am – 11:00 am

My picture book, Snow Sisters! came out with Knopf/Random House earlier this month. I have several West Seattle events/story times scheduled … a story time at West Seattle Library on Wednesday, January 24th at 10:30 am and at Southwest Library on Thursday, February 15th at 10:30 am.

Snow Sisters! By Kerri Kokias and Teagan White
ISBN 97811019388836
Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: January 2, 2018

Just like snowflakes, no two sisters are alike, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work together to make the perfect snow day! A heartwarming sibling story.

When snowflakes fall, two sisters react very differently. One is excited and the other is wary. The first sister spends the morning outdoors, playing until she’s all tuckered out. Meanwhile, the second sister stays indoors, becoming ever more curious about the drifts outside. Soon, they switch places, and spend the second half of the day retracing each other’s footsteps. But each sister puts her own unique spin on activities like sledding, baking and building.

The simple mirrored text is spare and lovely, and each spread is split to show what each sister is doing independently–until at last they come together in the sweet, satisfying conclusion. LeUyen Pham’s Big Sister, Little Sister meets Kate Messner’s Over and Under the Snow.

Open to the public!

Dr. Dyson is currently a professor of sociology at Georgetown University.

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Jan 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The January-February slate at Kenyon Hall:

Sunday, January 21, at 7:30 – Dennis James at the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ
The Master of the Wurlitzer returns to illuminate D. W. Griffith’s 1919 rural melodrama, True Heart Susie, featuring the preëminent star of the silent film era, Miss Lillian Gish. In addition to his brilliance at the organ, we’ll get a special treat when Dennis regales us about his six-year association with Miss Gish, whom he served as personal musician and silent film accompanist.

Saturday, January 27, at 7:30 – Barefoot Wonder, with Doug Deems
T Bruce Bowers and Ric Gillman are quite a pair. With almost a century of musical experience between them they bring a wide variety of flavors to the table. From Doc Watson guitar picking to blazing Led Zeppelin electric violin, it’s a banquet every time they perform. T Bruce last graced the Kenyon Hall stage with Ronny Cox, and we’re delighted to welcome him back, shod or not. This’ll be Ric’s and Doug’s first time at Kenyon. Please visit barefoot-wonder.com and dougdeems.com for more information.

Saturday, February 3, at 7:30 – The Debutones
It’s a pleasure to welcome back The Debutones, and the light hidden gems of acoustic roots-based songs they perform so well. Compelling stories, beautiful melodies—some folk, some country, and some bluegrass. Their music combines guitar, bass, violin, viola, Dobro, banjo, and vocals into an ensemble of remarkable beauty. Please visit debutones.com for more information.

Sunday, February 4, at 7:30 – Mary Flower
Mary is an internationally known picker and singer/songwriter. She’s based in Portland, where her long career continues to flourish, with four recent albums for Memphis’s famed Yellow Dog Records, and constant touring. She appeared at Kenyon Hall last year with Danny O’Keefe, and those in attendance begged her to return to do a full show. Thankfully she agreed to come back. Please visit maryflower.com for more information.

Saturday, February 17, at 7:30 – Mallet Head
Cool jazz fills the hall once again, courtesy of Seattle’s vibes wizard, Tom Collier. At each concert in the Mallet Head series, Tom brings colleagues from the professional jazz world to our stage for an evening of inventive improvisation, classy chords, and wild melodies.

Saturday, February 24 at 7:30 – Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
Seattle Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the Re-Arrangers evokes the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with its version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca’s sweet violin playing, his sense of melody, and daring improvisations.”—World Rhythm. Their repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger’s unique originals. Please visit rangerswings.com for more information.

PEERLESS @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Jan 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

PEERLESS @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

Ours is a progressive synagogue rejoicing in Torah, Avodah (Worship/Prayer), Tzedek and Tikkun (Justice and Healing) but specializing in K’hillah (Community).

We are young, old, families, singles, single parents, interfaith, straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered.

Our Rabbi, with support from an ensemble of lay-leaders, conducts Friday night services in a welcoming musical environment. Services are followed by a community dairy and kosher fish potluck. Saturday mornings begin with study for both adults and children, followed by a Torah service for all.

Kol HaNeshamah offers a Hebrew school for children and an educational program for adults along with festive celebrations of Jewish holidays. We are also involved in Tikkun Olam activities, including support of the West Seattle Foodbank and Habitat for Humanity.

Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

Free memoir-writing workshop with Martin Piccoli @ Southwest Library
Feb 3 @ 4:00 pm – 5:20 pm

This coming Valentine’s Day, reach beyond the chocolates and flowers and give someone you love something priceless: the gift of your story.

Join writing teacher Martin Piccoli in a two-part writing workshop focused on crafting a short memoir that celebrates the positive impact someone has had on your life. In this class, you will review the basics of memoir, select and shape a personal story you wish to share, and compose your piece. (Much of your independent writing will be completed in the two weeks between the classes, so, yes, there’s homework.)

When this workshop concludes, you will have a solid draft of your story ready to give a friend, a parent, a sibling, a partner, a spouse (along with those chocolates?)–or to keep just for yourself.

West Seattle resident Martin Piccoli is your host for this event. He’s spent the last 25 years teaching writing in the public schools of Seattle, Columbus, Ohio, and Brooklyn. This year he’s taking time out of the classroom to do some personal writing, and hopes with this workshop he can help you do the same.

This workshop is open to the public, though seating will be limited.

The classes will be held in the upstairs meeting room of the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library, 9010 35th Ave SW.

The classes run from 4 pm – 5:20 pm

The first class is on Saturday, January 20.

The second class is on Saturday, February 3.

Please bring something to write with, analog or digital.

For more information, please contact Martin (me!) at martinpiccoli@aol.com.

West Seattle Meaningful Movies: ‘Harvest of Empire’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
Feb 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

On Saturday, February 3, Hate Free Delridge and West Seattle Meaningful Movies present a timely film about immigration:

Harvest of Empire
The Untold Story of Latinos in America

Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now co-host, Juan González, this film reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and immigration today.

Featuring real-life stories and rare archival footage, it examines the events and conditions that have led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands in an unprecedented wave of migration. From U.S. wars for territorial expansion to covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes, it unveils a story largely unknown to most U.S. citizens.

Some graphic violence. Not recommended for children.

90 minutes; Spanish subtitles
Directed by Peter Getzels and Eduardo López, 2012
Trailer: harvestofempiremovie.com (in both English and Spanish)

After the film, members of Hate Free Delridge will share ideas and facilitate a discussion about how we can support local immigrants.

Saturday, January 27, at 7:30 – Barefoot Wonder, with Doug Deems
T Bruce Bowers and Ric Gillman are quite a pair. With almost a century of musical experience between them they bring a wide variety of flavors to the table. From Doc Watson guitar picking to blazing Led Zeppelin electric violin, it’s a banquet every time they perform. T Bruce last graced the Kenyon Hall stage with Ronny Cox, and we’re delighted to welcome him back, shod or not. This’ll be Ric’s and Doug’s first time at Kenyon.

Please visit debutones.com for more information.

Mary is an internationally known picker and singer/songwriter. She’s based in Portland, where her long career continues to flourish, with four recent albums for Memphis’s famed Yellow Dog Records, and constant touring.

Please visit maryflower.com for more information.

Saturday, February 17, at 7:30 – Mallet Head
Cool jazz fills the hall once again, courtesy of Seattle’s vibes wizard, Tom Collier. At each concert in the Mallet Head series, Tom brings colleagues from the professional jazz world to our stage for an evening of inventive improvisation, classy chords, and wild melodies.

Saturday, February 24 at 7:30 – Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
Seattle Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the Re-Arrangers evokes the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with its version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca’s sweet violin playing, his sense of melody, and daring improvisations.”—World Rhythm. Their repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger’s unique originals. Please visit rangerswings.com for more information.

By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

January-February shows at Kenyon Hall
Feb 4 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The January-February slate at Kenyon Hall:

Sunday, January 21, at 7:30 – Dennis James at the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ
The Master of the Wurlitzer returns to illuminate D. W. Griffith’s 1919 rural melodrama, True Heart Susie, featuring the preëminent star of the silent film era, Miss Lillian Gish. In addition to his brilliance at the organ, we’ll get a special treat when Dennis regales us about his six-year association with Miss Gish, whom he served as personal musician and silent film accompanist.

Saturday, January 27, at 7:30 – Barefoot Wonder, with Doug Deems
T Bruce Bowers and Ric Gillman are quite a pair. With almost a century of musical experience between them they bring a wide variety of flavors to the table. From Doc Watson guitar picking to blazing Led Zeppelin electric violin, it’s a banquet every time they perform. T Bruce last graced the Kenyon Hall stage with Ronny Cox, and we’re delighted to welcome him back, shod or not. This’ll be Ric’s and Doug’s first time at Kenyon. Please visit barefoot-wonder.com and dougdeems.com for more information.

Saturday, February 3, at 7:30 – The Debutones
It’s a pleasure to welcome back The Debutones, and the light hidden gems of acoustic roots-based songs they perform so well. Compelling stories, beautiful melodies—some folk, some country, and some bluegrass. Their music combines guitar, bass, violin, viola, Dobro, banjo, and vocals into an ensemble of remarkable beauty. Please visit debutones.com for more information.

Sunday, February 4, at 7:30 – Mary Flower
Mary is an internationally known picker and singer/songwriter. She’s based in Portland, where her long career continues to flourish, with four recent albums for Memphis’s famed Yellow Dog Records, and constant touring. She appeared at Kenyon Hall last year with Danny O’Keefe, and those in attendance begged her to return to do a full show. Thankfully she agreed to come back. Please visit maryflower.com for more information.

Saturday, February 17, at 7:30 – Mallet Head
Cool jazz fills the hall once again, courtesy of Seattle’s vibes wizard, Tom Collier. At each concert in the Mallet Head series, Tom brings colleagues from the professional jazz world to our stage for an evening of inventive improvisation, classy chords, and wild melodies.

Saturday, February 24 at 7:30 – Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
Seattle Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the Re-Arrangers evokes the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with its version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca’s sweet violin playing, his sense of melody, and daring improvisations.”—World Rhythm. Their repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger’s unique originals. Please visit rangerswings.com for more information.

Elise Hooper at Words, Writers, West Seattle @ High Point Library
Feb 8 @ 6:00 pm

The Other Alcott by West Seattle author Elise Hooper
Feb. 8th, 6 PM at Seattle Public Library’s High Point Branch

Marking the 150th Anniversary of the publication of Little Women, Elise Hooper will present her novel, The Other Alcott (William Morrow, Sept. 2017), about May Alcott, an artist and Louise May Alcott’s sister.

This free book-talk event by Words, Writers & West Seattle co-sponsored by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and Seattle Public Library takes place at 6 PM at the High Point Branch, 3411 SW Raymond St. (Raymond and 35th), on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2017.

The complicated relationship among sisters and the one shared by the Alcott sisters of Concord, Massachusetts inspired Louisa May Alcott as she wrote her classic novel Little Women. However, instead of focusing on Jo March, a character based on Louisa herself, Amy is often the least favorite sister. Hooper’s first novel tells the truth about Louisa’s sister, May.

The other Alcott sister, May, is stylish, outgoing, creative, and grows up longing to experience the wide world beyond Concord. While her sister Louisa crafts stories, May is a talented and dedicated artist and faces scorn for entering what is very much a man’s profession.

Author Elise Hooper has lived in West Seattle since moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2001 and now lives with her husband and two young daughters within stone-skipping distance of Puget Sound. When she’s not writing, Elise is in her classroom trying to make American history and literature interesting for high school students.

She’s drawn to historical figures, especially women, who linger in the footnotes of history books yet have fascinating stories waiting to be told. The Other Alcott is Hooper’s first novel

Words, Writers & West Seattle’s future book-talks are all scheduled for the Second Thursday of each month at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library, 9010 35th Ave. SW, West Seattle, WA 99126. On March 8, 2018, Peter Stekel will present Beneath Haunted Waters (Globe Pequot, 2017), a WWII aviation mystery.

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

The Esoterics present ‘dēlectō’ @ Holy Rosary Church
Feb 9 @ 8:00 pm

dēlectō
the dialogue around love

DĒLECTŌ, our first concert of 2018, will re-imagine the canticle – specifically, the conversation of lovers, as in the Song of Songs. But instead of focusing on the bride and groom, the performances will center around a more mature version of love.

The concert will feature three pieces. The first is a short piece entitled “Love”, by the Canadian composer Rodney Sharman, who recently was honored by the Canada Council for the Arts as the winner of the 2017 Walter Carsen Prize for Excellence in the Performing Arts. “Love” sets a verse by the 17th-century poet George Sandys expressing the power of love to unite disparate forces.

We will also premiere two longer pieces. Thanks in part to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Esoterics have commissioned a piece from the Minnesota-based wife/husband composers Jocelyn Hagen and Timothy C. Takach, who have collaborated for the first time to create “This is how you love.” The thirteen-movement a cappella work is a modern dialogue about the many aspects of marriage, from first love and infatuation to conflict and compromise. The texts include contemporary poetry and transcript excerpts from couples counseling sessions.

The centerpiece of this concert is the premiere of Eric Banks’ newest work, The river of love. This composition was commissioned as a wedding gift from Robert Alexander to his wife Ali, who has been a longstanding and enthusiastic friend of The Esoterics. The piece sets couplets (or doha) in ancient Hindi and Farsi (with English translations) by the fourteenth-century Sufi mystic, Amir Khusro. Khusro’s poems explore different images of love as a river – as a means for a journey, an obstacle to be crossed, a source for refinement, and a depth in which to find oneself immersed.

The Esoterics will present three performances of DĒLECTŌ. Please join us as we celebrate the many facets of love and commitment this February.

9 February 2018 | 800 pm | Holy Rosary Catholic Church | 4210 SW Genesee Street | West Seattle

General admission ticket prices are $25 at the door ($22 in advance). Discounted admission ticket prices are $18 at the door ($15 in advance) for students, seniors, the un(der)employed, and the differently-abled. Active singers in other choral groups may also attend for $15.
