Join music director Brian Tate and the City Soul Choir for JAMBALAYA - The Big Easy and Beyond. The choir will serve you up a spicy stew of songs, featuring music from its April adventure to New Orleans, stirred into a saucy mix of gospel, blues, and Motown; plus music from Haiti, South Africa, Australia, and more! With Tom Arntzen on piano. You'll have your choice between two evening concerts: Friday, May 29 or Saturday May 30. But you might just like JAMBALAYA so much, you'll want to attend both!

SWEET SCARLET is a self-directed vocal ensemble made up of a group of women who share a love of music and performing. Combining intricate harmonies with a cappella vocals, Sweet Scarlet brings its own twist to music from around the globe. Based in Vancouver, and brought together by a desire to share interesting, fun and exciting music with others, these women bring a new dimension to the music scene that is both captivating and compelling.

THE SQUARES are an award winning vocal quartet made up of the nicest guys you are ever going to meet. They sing in an a cappella style (no instruments) and their music ranges from classic barbershop from the Tin Pan Alley era, to doo-wop, gospel and more contemporary songs. They've appeared on TV, radio, stages and venues around the Pacific Northwest. Their energy is refreshing, but their style is just a little old fashioned. "It's HIP to be SQUARE!"
