This is an invitation to all women who want to sing with a non-audition chorus in North Seattle. The Emerald City Women’s Chorus is looking for more members. The chorus meets in the Wedgwood neighborhood on Monday nights (7:30-9:30 p.m.) during the “school year.”
Winter quarter 2018 starts Monday, January 15 (yes, the evening of MLK Day) and wraps-up after 10 rehearsals with a community concert on Sunday, March 25. Cost is $117 for the quarter, including music provided for each singer to keep.
The music sung is a mix of genres, from show tunes to classical to folk and rock and roll, with the occasional song in a foreign language.
Emerald City Women’s Chorus was established in Fall 2017, in collaboration with Music Center of the Northwest, by members who had previously sung together in the (now disbanded) Rain City Women’s Chorus and wanted to continue singing in a supportive, fun and non-audition chorus. The chorus currently has 40 members. Stacia Cumberland is the chorus artistic director, and Tom Hecker is the accompanist.
The chorus wants to expand its membership and extends an invitation to all women who enjoy singing for the joy of it. For information about the chorus (1) call Sharon Glein at (206) 525-7497 (please leave a message), (2) register through Music Center of the Northwest by calling (206) 526-8443, or (3) come at 7:00 p.m. before the first rehearsal at the Wedgwood Community Church, 8201 30th Ave NE, Seattle on Monday, January 15, 2018.

I am a former member of the Rain City Women’s Chorus (as well as the Rain City Symphony). I’m no longer able to travel to be in this group but I wondered if the Chorus has reformed and will be performing this spring?
Also, as I sit at my computer in the retirement home, and review wonderful past experiences with the Rain City Women’s Chorus under Jo-Ann Christen, I wondering if any current members live near Merrill Gardens, at 5300 24th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105, and would be willing to provide a ride to rehearsals. I would be happy to pay for the travel and would love the opportunity to sing with this wonderful group. I’m experienced and trained in music to be able to join in and contribute. Thank you.

PS: Will there be a spring quarter coming up?
PS I have a range and can sing First and 2nd soprano, and Alto as needed. Kathy Lillie
