Northwest Firelight Chorale holiday concert @ Westside School
Dec 8 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

On December 8, 14 and 15, The Northwest Firelight Chorale presents its holiday concert,
“We Wish You the Merriest! Holiday Hits of the ’50s and ’60s” both in West Seattle at Westside School
Theater, 10404 34th Ave. SW, and in Ballard at Ballard First Lutheran Church, 2006 NW 65th St. Tickets
are $22 for adults, $12 for youth (5-12), and free for children 4 and younger.

The program will include spectacular arrangements of seasonal favorites as they were sung by the stars of
the 50’s and 60’s, including Andy Williams, Eartha Kitt, Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mathis. The
70-person choir, now in its 8th season, is led by artistic director Deeji Killian, a former Seattle Opera
soloist with a theater and dance background. The Northwest Firelight Chorale, who performs all music
memorized, is known for its innovative staging, choreography and expressive performances that provide
an exhilarating experience for its 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 at least two outreach concerts per 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 this past summer when it
enthralled audiences in France, Belgium and Ireland. In addition to fulfilling its mission to share
soul-stirring music, the choir donated all proceeds from its performances to local charities within the
regions it visited.

To purchase tickets or see videos, visit the group’s website: www.nwfirelightchorale.org.

Northwest Firelight Chorale is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The Esoterics in concert: ADŌRŌ @ Holy Rosary Church
Dec 8 @ 8:00 pm

ADŌRŌ
the reimagined prayer | the wish within silence

“May I find hope in the darkest of days,
And focus in the brightest.”
Tenzin Gyatso, the XIV Dalai Lama

The Esoterics concludes its silver anniversary celebration
with compositions that explore the comfort and majesty that the natural world inspires

This December, The Esoterics will conclude its 25th season with a program of contemporary prayers, in keeping with the theme of this year: saecula sacrorum, or “secular versions of sacred forms.” Since humans first appealed to higher powers, each prayer has included three aspects: an earnest wish, a willing benefactor, and a quiet utterance. In their secular form, prayers are often made to the divine that we find in nature, in ourselves, and in our communities. In ADŌRŌ, The Esoterics will perform a concert of new choral works that explore the solace, focus, and strength inspired by the natural world.

The program will include two settings of Sara Teasdale’s poetry by The Esoterics’ composer emeritus, Donald Skirvin – There will come soft rains and Places, like music – as well as two pieces by former POLYPHONOS winner Christina Whitten Thomas – My cathedral (setting Longfellow) and Discovery (setting verses by poet-oceanographer Deirdre Lockwood). In addition, the ensemble will sing When I close my eyes I dream of peace by Swedish composer Karin Rehnqvist, a piece that sets this single phrase (uttered by an anonymous Croatian boy during the Yugoslav Wars) in twelve languages. The group will also sing Mason Bates’ “far-out” Observer in the Magellanic Cloud, which sets an ancient Maori entreaty to the night sky for a fruitful harvest. Director Eric Banks will also contribute a short piece to this program, At all times, setting verses on light by the XIV Dalai Lama.

The centerpiece of concert is the eleven-movement cycle of Prayers by John Gould Fletcher, composed by Joseph Gregorio. Joe set three of Fletcher’s “secular humanist” prayers in 2013 when he won our POLYPHONOS competition, and they were so beautiful that we commissioned him to write a cycle that included all of them! We are especially grateful to the Ann Stookey Fund for New Music for helping to fund this commission, and are excited to welcome Joe, Christina, and Don for the entire concert weekend.

The Esoterics will offer three performances of ADŌRŌ.
Please join us for this concert of care and contemplation.

General admission ticket prices are $25 at the door ($22 in advance).

Friday and Saturday, January 4 and 5 – Peter Mintun in Concert
I belong to a not-very-exclusive club of professional pianists who would give anything to play like New York cabaret artist Peter Mintun. Michael Feinstein put it succinctly: “When I grow up, I want to be Peter Mintun.” Liberace once sat in admiration listening to Peter, and greeted him warmly and respectfully after the performance. Many other keyboard artists, such as Michael Tilson Thomas and Max Morath, are also loyal fans.

What distinguishes this artist? For me it’s the style, accuracy, humor, and grace with which he flies over the keys. He negotiates wildly contrasting moods with ease, and he pulls it all off with panache, occasionally flashing an impishly playful smile.

Please visit petermintun.com to learn more about this remarkable artist.

Intersections Festival @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Mar 21 @ 2:00 pm

Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance will be happening for the second year, this March 21-24, 2019 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in the Delridge neighborhood. Intersections showcases performers in improv, sketch, stand-up, burlesque, storytelling, spoken word, music, theatre, and dance; however, it doesn’t end there.Intersections remains committed to its focus on equity, inclusion, and representation. “Seattle is a diverse city,” says Jekeva Phillips, one member of the all-womxn team, “Why are we only seeing the same faces and hearing the same voices?” Phillips (who is featured in City Arts Magazine’s 2018 Future List) was approached about the project by Natasha Ransom, and Kinzie Shaw of FEELINGS, an Improv duo which aims to amplify intersectional feminism in the face of a white-cis-hetero patriarchy.

The four-day festival will feature a myriad of comedy-related acts from Seattle’s best and brightest POC, Queer, Trans, non-binary, and neurodiverse performers. Each show is a different experience loaded with a variety of acts. No show in the festival will be the same, so the Intersections team strongly encourages patrons to be a part of it all. “We are so excited to be in the audience for this festival,” Say co-founders Natasha Ransom and Kinzie Shaw “The talent is just unbelievably good and we want to soak as much of it in as possible.”

Don’t miss our Giving Party, coming up Saturday March 9th from 2-4pm at Capitol Cider. It’s completely free to attend! For more information about the festival, like Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance on Facebook or visit the website: www.intersectionsfestival.com

Northern Ballard performs @ C & P Coffee Company
Mar 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Northern Ballard performs at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). More from C & P:

Since all the hipsters moved in, Northern Ballard is considering relocating to somewhere less pretentious. In an attempt to drown out the perpetual construction, Northern Ballard preserves its sanity writing songs about love, happiness, and infrastructure. His English accent and penchant for ripping off the classic 60’s songbook mark him up as one of the leading plagiarists of our time.

West Seattle Symphony Orchestras’ ‘Night of Drama’ @ Chief Sealth IHS Auditorium
Mar 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

West Seattle Symphony Orchestras (WSCO) will present a Night of Drama Friday, March 22, featuring two symphonies — a Wind Symphony and a Symphony Orchestra!

The Wind Symphony, conducted by Anton Coleman, will open the concert with two classics of wind band literature: The Holst Suites in E-flat and F. Each suite features bold, toe-tapping marches interwoven with soft English melodies.

The Symphony Orchestra continues the concert with Franz Schubert’s ever popular Unfinished Symphony, conducted by guest conductor Aaron Hirsch. Aaron brings his experience in orchestral conducting and teaching to this haunting and lovely piece.

A special treat is in store during the “third half” of the program—a collaboration of the orchestra with a veritable power couple of the opera world, internationally acclaimed performers and scholars Dr. Gayla Bauer Blaisdell and Torrance Blaisdell. They have performed from Carnegie Hall to Broadway, from Benaroya Hall to Opera Monaco! This dynamic duo will treat you to selections from Verdi, Puccini, and Wagner.

This FREE concert will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium at Chief Sealth International High School, 2600 SW Thistle Street. For more info, visit our website, www.wscorchestras.org or email info@wscorchestras.org. Donations to support free participation by students are always appreciated.

Meet Grampa Gus @ Kenyon Hall
Mar 23 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Saturday, March 23, at 7:30 – Meet Grampa Gus

Steve Marx is familiar to Kenyon Hall audiences as the banjoist in the popular Bluegrass band, Ryegrass. What you may not know is that Steve’s grandfather was one of America’s greatest lyricists, the esteemed Gus Kahn. (Just a few of his songs—Memories, Toot Toot Tootsie, It Had to be You, Makin’ Whoopee, and Dream a Little Dream of Me.)

Steve has created a new show that features the music of Grampa Gus, as told with his band, One Planet Jazz, and with Hollywood movie clips and family stories. Fly down to Rio with Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and an ensemble of winged bathing beauties. Watch Marilyn Monroe croon “I’m Through With Love” in a most-revealing dress. And find out how, after producing over 200 rejected lyrics, Gus came to write his first hit song.

My project is a genre-bending group that fuses elements of classical and jazz music into our performances.

It is a lively, dynamic piece in seven movements that draws stylings from Baroque music, fugues, chamber jazz, Duke Ellington, and beyond.

NORTHWEST BOYCHOIR PRESENTS–“CHORAL TRADITION” @ Holy Rosary Church
Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm

The highly acclaimed Northwest Boychoir announces their Choral Tradition series for March 2019. Now in its fifth season, Choral Tradition celebrates the breadth and diversity of the classical choral repertoire.

This year’s program will feature John Rutter’s Gloria, and great choral works by Brahms, Debussy, Lauridsen, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Orff and Rheinberger for both treble and SATB male chorus.

About the Northwest Boychoir

The Northwest Boychoir’s musical sophistication, rich tonal quality, and dedication to exacting perfection have established its reputation as one of the nation’s pre­mier children’s choirs. Along with Vocalpoint! Seattle, the Northwest Boychoir has trained thousands of young singers for more than 40 years, and more significantly, shaped the lives of our region’s youth by teaching important lessons in personal commitment and the value of teamwork. Led by Joseph Crnko, now in his 35th year as Music Director, the Choir’s staff of professional musicians and educators is engaged in the teaching of a rigorous curriculum that trains young singers, 6-18 years old, to be fully-skilled musicians who sing at the highest professional level, read music fluently, and perform in professional settings with confidence.

For more than 30 years, the Choirs have maintained a close working relationship with the Seattle Symphony and participate annually in the performance of great choral works. Last February, the Northwest Boychoir joined with the SSO to perform Vivadi’s Gloria, and then in March returned to Benaroya Hall for performances of Orff’s Carmina burana. The following month, the Boychoir again collaborated with the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Symphony Chorale for performances of Stravinsky’s Perséphone. The Northwest Boychoir will perform the Debussy Nocturnes in Maestro Morlot’s Farewell Concert with the Seattle Symphony in June.

Last June, the Northwest Boychoir presented their annual classical series, Choral Tradition, featuring Michael Haydn’s Missa Sancti Aloyssi and Francis Poulenc’s Gloria. At the end of the year, the Northwest Boychoir was honored to perform with Music of Remembrance when they presented their 20th Anniversary concert at Benaroya Hall. The Northwest Boychoir closed its season with eight performances of its 40th season of A Festival of Lessons & Carols, including a presentation with Northwest Sinfonia at Benaroya Hall.

Along with a very active performance schedule, the Northwest Boychoir is regularly contracted for recording engagements. Last year the Northwest Boychoir recorded the soundtrack for the motion picture Prospect, and can also be heard in Cirque du Soleil’s Volta. The Northwest Boychoir serves as the official “Singing Ambassadors” of Washington.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Apr 6 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
May 4 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

Guided Bug Walk @ (see listing)
May 4 @ 10:00 am

Expert Amber Chiozza of Scarabs, a local entomological society, will teach us about insects and spiders living in our beautiful West Duwamish Greenbelt.

Meet at the trailhead across the street from 4715 21st Avenue SW. Bring water, sturdy shoes or boots and be prepared for the elements. The walk will take about 1.5 hours.

Sponsored by the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails Group, www.wdgtrails.org. For more information contact us at wdgtrails@gmail.com.

INCLUSIVITY: The Esoterics in Concert @ Holy Rosary Catholic Church
May 18 @ 8:00 pm

The Esoterics will continue its 26th season, focusing on choral programs that explore poetry and music inspired by virtues of integrity that are so crucial in these divisive times.

In the second program, The Esoterics will explore the human power of togetherness, INCLUSIVITY. This performance will trace the origins of “otherness” in the first moments of infancy, and explore how these emotions develop into exclusion, both interpersonally and in society. The resulting divisiveness and xenophobia cause persecution, violence, shunning, and the loneliness of exile. In the face of such conflict, the program will advocate for philoxenia–the acceptance of strangers and desire to show hospitality–promoting the idea that we are stronger together, as an interdependent human community.

Singing texts in English, Hebrew, Indonesian, Mandarin, Quechua, and Spanish by Chairil Anwar, José María Arguedas, Li Ba, e. e. cummings, Vivian Eden, Bai Ju-Yi, Amy Beth Kirsten, Salman Masalha, Li Shang-Yin, Donald Woods Winnicott, Malala Yousafzai, Xu Yuan-Zhong, Chen Zi-Ang, The Esoterics’ INCLUSIVITY will feature music by Eric Banks, Melissa Dunphy, Sivan Eldar, Marisa Sharon Hartanto, Ted Hearne, David Lang, Kala Pierson, Christopher Theofanidis, Augusta Read Thomas, and Chen Yi.

The Esoterics will offer three performances of INCLUSIVITY.

Please join us as we promote acceptance and interdependence.

Program list:

  • Know the Rules (2019) by Eric BanksTogether (2012) by Melissa Dunphy
  • The song about the child (2015) by Sivan Eldar
  •  Doa [A prayer] (2014) by Marisa Sharon Hartanto
  • What it might say (2015) by Ted Hearne
  • Make peace (2016) by David Lang
  • Mother of exiles (2018) by Kala Pierson
  • November prayer (2007) by Christopher Theofanidis
  • !hope (2017) by Augusta Read Thomas
  • Two Chinese folksongs (2003) by Chen Yi

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. Advance tickets are available online at www.TheEsoterics.org (through BrownPaperTickets).

For the past several months, three teens have been working diligently to produce YOUTH: Teen Arts and Opportunities Fair, an entirely youth-created event. This year, the Teen Arts and Opportunities Fair’s focus is hip-hop, a genre familiar to many teens and one that can serve as a gateway to the rest of the arts world. During the course of the fair, attendees will participate in hip-hop workshops, such as Intro to DJing, talk to several of TeenTix’s partners, and listen to well-known teen artists perform live. The event will culminate in a hip-hop performance featuring some of Seattle’s premier youth dancers.

Event Timeline:

4:30 – 6:30: Tabling, pop-up performances, and workshops

6:30 – 7: Doors open for dance performance, dinner is served

7 – 8:30: Dance performance

Event Information:

Hip-hop, with its powerful tie to social justice, is an art form that sparks societal change. Hip-hop dance, specifically, is a valuable tool for teens to be exposed to. However, dance can be expensive to participate in or to experience as an audience member. By hosting a free event, the project leads hope to connect with youth who might not otherwise have the chance to participate in dance and showcase the power of hip-hop. As well, this event will serve as a platform for youth to perform in a safe environment, allowing other teens to learn more and celebrate their peers and their accomplishments. Finally, this is an event by teens, for teens. Because the leaders of this Fair are youth who already participate deeply in Seattle’s art scene, the Teen Arts and Opportunities Fair will cater to the needs and desires of teens who might not otherwise engage with an event like this. The teen leaders hope the Fair’s activities will work to build a community of youth, whether they consider themselves an artist or not, who have connected and learned from one another.

The students involved are all members of The New Guard, TeenTix’s youth board, and have secured funding, food donations, space, and performers for the 2019 fair. The project leads were inspired by the example of New Guard alum Abbey Scobee, who produced the original fair last May. This year, they hope to put their own creative spin on the already successful event.

About the Youth Leaders:

YOUTH: Teen Arts and Opportunities Fair, was visualized by three members of TeenTix’s New Guard: Kaylyn Ready, Anya Shukla, and Neha Gupta. Kaylyn, a senior at Nathan Hale, is an advocate for equitable arts consumption and a dancer in the Seattle hip-hop community. She wanted to create this fair to share the gift that is the Seattle hip-hop community with as many people as possible and to show how dance can be used as a form of expression for everyone. Anya, a sophomore at Lakeside, is a proponent of racial equity in the arts and strongly believes in increased arts access. Since hip-hop is such an accessible medium, she feels it is the perfect way to increase teen interest in the arts. Neha, a junior at Eastside Prep, strongly advocates for equitable arts access for teens from all backgrounds and wishes to see further teen engagement in the Seattle art scene. She hopes to empower other youth to get involved and to begin cultivating a more diverse teen art community.

About TeenTix:

TeenTix exists to break down the barriers that prevent teens from accessing art in our community, such as ticket or admission cost, not knowing where to look for events, navigating transportation around the city, and feeling insecure around arts-going if there’s no one in their lives already championing the arts. TeenTix builds a bright future for our city by empowering young people to take an active role in shaping their arts community as audience members, critics, influencers, advocates, patrons, and leaders.

The New Guard is formally an arts leadership and administrative training program for teens, but really this group is the heart and soul of TeenTix. New Guardians play a central role in guiding the development of TeenTix programs and events, identifying organizational values and serving as the primary teen ambassadors for TeenTix, AND they participate in high-level decision-making alongside our Board of Directors and Advisory Council. The 2018/19 New Guard consists of 48 teens, 8 of whom serve on the New Guard Leadership Board acting as the program’s primary administrators with mentorship from TeenTix’s Executive Director.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Jun 1 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 2 all-day

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 6 all-day

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

West Seattle Community Orchestras’ spring finale @ Chief Sealth IHS Auditorium
Jun 7 @ 7:00 pm

“Out of This World!” West Seattle Orchestras’ spectacular spring season finale

Leading the evening, the Intermediate Orchestra under the direction of Mike Jauregui will trip you out of the universe with Holst’s “Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity” and “Rosin Eating Zombies from Outer Space.”

On a more serious, down-to-earth note the premiere of “Anthem to Courage”, written by West Seattle resident and WSCO musician Robert Duisberg, will be presented in honor of local artist and remarkable survivor, “Brenda.” In the words of the composer, the compelling main theme, the Amabile section, is a sort of “love song without words,a answered by a heroic brass chorus. All is framed by an Andante Solenne, a solemn processional, with chimes marking the march of our time as mortals, ending in the hopeful heroic strain of a vanishing solo horn.”

The West Seattle Wind Symphony portion of the concert, conducted by Anton Coleman, includes the haunting “O Magnum Mysterium,” written by Morten Lauridsen, an internationally revered composer with roots in the Pacific Northwest. The concert will conclude with “Give Us This Day,” composed by the late David Maslanka, a prolific composer for orchestra and wind ensembles. Pianist Dayana Capulong joins the WSCO Wind Symphony for this unusual piece featuring full wind ensemble with piano.
