The Market Street Singers present:
Sounds Like Music
A concert about what our ears love to hear
Saturday, May 18, 7:30pm and Sunday, May 19, 3:00pm
at Ballard First Lutheran Church (NW 65th & 20th NW, across from Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ)
It’s what we do; it’s what we love. Our concerts are always about things we know best: love, life, the world and its strange and fascinating ways. We often sing about a wide range of subjects but a concert all about music itself is not common. We have prepared a diverse selection all about this beloved pastime. We’ll be singing about how we feel about music, how we make music, and how music symbolizes significant things in our lives. There will be music that is serious and fun, traditional and contemporary, new and familiar. We’ll hear music by composers such as Henry Purcell, George F. Handel, William Billings, William Schuman, Carole King, and Leonard Cohen. Even if you have had no experience as a music maker, you will find things to love in this program. And perhaps you’ll leave with a deeper feeling about how important music is to you.
