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.
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.
