a summer of choral favorites
The Market Street Singers’ next season began Tuesday, June 7th, with a whole summer of choral classics. We have been presenting our popular “Festival of Favorites” at the Northwest Folklife Festival for several years, a sing-along attracting scores of choral enthusiasts coming together to sing through the most enduring choral standards.
This summer will be spent slowly reviewing and learning these great works, and then presenting them in an informal sing-along event in late August (date and time TBA).
These will be the best of the best choral hits by composers such as Bach, Mozart, Morley, Lassus, Palestrina, Farmer, Brahms, and contemporary masters like Rutter, Thompson, and Biebl.
The whole summer is designed to appeal to both veteran choral singers and newbies. We encourage visitors and drop-ins as we rediscovery the joy of singing great and memorable choral music.
