CHORUS IN CONCERT, AND BIDDING DIRECTOR FAREWELL: 3 pm at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church:

The director of the Seattle Metropolitan Singers, John Gulhaugen, is retiring after 12 years of leading this group of amateur women singers. John has spent much of his life tied to music – from earning a BA in Music from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, to singing with the Seattle Opera Chorus, to directing the music at Peace Lutheran Church in West Seattle, to challenging the Seattle Metropolitan Singers to improve the depth and breadth of their singing. John plans to relax during his free evenings, and maybe take up singing in a group for himself.

The concert program “Encores” will include songs from the past 12 years of concerts, including such pieces as “A Girl’s Garden,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Hotaru Koi,” and “The Storm is Passing Over.”

At this concert, the Seattle Metropolitan Singers will also introduce the incoming director of the group.

A farewell reception will be held after the concert.

CORREO AEREO: Live Latin/world music performance at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), 3-5 pm. (5612 California SW)

      Our contributors don’t “disturb wildlife” – they photograph from a distance.

Sorry, comment time is over.
