On December 13, 14 and 21, The Northwest Firelight Chorale presents its Holiday concert, “Star Light, Holiday Bright – Believe in the Magic!” in three locations across Seattle: in Phinney Ridge at Phinney Lutheran Church, 7500 Greenwood Ave North; in West Seattle at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church, 3050 California Ave SW; and in the University District at University Congregational Church, 4515 16th Ave NE. Tickets are $22 for adults, $12 for youth (5-12), and free for children 4 and younger.
The group invites the community to brighten up their holidays with this festive concert! Their ever popular holiday program will include stunning arrangements of seasonal favorites, a glorious gospel showstopper, a rousing sing-along, and the kind of joyful surprises that the Firelighters are known for. The 70-person choir, now in their 9th season, is led by artistic director Deeji Killian, a former Seattle Opera soloist with a theater and dance background. The Northwest Firelight Chorale, who perform all music memorized, are known for their innovative staging, choreography and expressive performances that provide an exhilarating experience for their audiences.
The choir has performed at the Northwest Folklife Festival, headlined twice at the Leavenworth Tree Lighting Ceremony, and opened for famed Irish tenor Emmet Cahill on his last two U.S. tours. The group also performs outreach concerts for each program at senior living facilities to bring music and healing to those who cannot easily attend its regular concerts.
The choir has embarked on three European Concert tours, most recently in the summer of 2018 when they enthralled audiences in France, Belgium and Ireland. In addition to fulfilling its mission to share soul-stirring music, the choir donated all proceeds from their performances to local charities within the regions they visited.
