There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently residing in the United States. Allowing these immigrants to regularize their status, some argue, is good for the U.S. economy, strengthens national security, and enhances America’s culture. Others oppose amnesty arguing that it only rewards those who have broken our immigration laws. They want immigration reform that focuses on enforcement and upholding the rule of law. This presentation is a collaboration between Global Affairs Center (GAC) and the Office of Students, Equity, & Success

There’s liver for dinner, holes in his shoes, and a war on the horizon, but 15-year-old Eugene Jerome would rather think about baseball…and girls. Surrounded by his overworked mother and father, his “worldly” older brother, his aunt, and two cousins, Eugene has plenty of material for his future career as a writer. This coming-of-age story is an affectionate, entertaining lesson in overcoming hard times with warmth and humor.

Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first installment in Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical Eugene Jerome trilogy (which includes the plays Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound) and is one of America’s most cherished plays. The New York Daily News called the original New York production “…in many respects Neil Simon’s funniest, richest, and consequently the most affecting of his plays”, and elevated Simon into the pantheon of great American playwrights.

Chamber Chorale & Shoreline Singers featuring Jeff Kashiwa in “Sing To Me”
Thurs., December 7
Doors open at 7pm
Venue: First Lutheran Church of Richmond Beach, 18354 8th Avenue NW, Shoreline, WA  98177
No admittance fee, but donations are graciously accepted.
Sing To Me poster.jpg
The Fall session concert of Shoreline Community College’s two choral ensembles, Chamber Chorale and Shoreline Singers, will feature saxophonist, and Shoreline music faculty member, Jeff Kashiwa.

The program stemmed from a single piece, Ola Gjielo’s, Evening Prayer, a beautiful flurry of chords, melody, and beauty all tied together with tenor sax. When I first presented the idea to Jeff, he wholeheartedly agreed and proceeded to blow us all away with his world-renowned musicianship. This inspired a program that featured him on more than just the one tune. Jeff moves seamlessly between Soprano Sax, Tenor, and Clarinet.

We also welcome Northwest composer John Muehleisen, who has composed for all types of ensembles and setups and is most recently honored with premiers across the nation for his work on Pietá, a 90-minute oratorio about compassion and mercy, and But Who Will Return Us Our Children? – A Kipling Passion, a moving compilation of letters, prose, and poetry that explores the costs of war from the view of families left behind.

Additionally, both choirs will join that of Edmonds Community College and Edmonds-Woodway High School for four movements of Vivaldi’s Gloria.

~Evan Norberg, Director of Choirs
