The MAREKT STREET SINGERS present.......
Saturday, August 27, at 7:30pm
Ballard First Lutheran Church - Downstairs Social Hall
2006 NW 65th Street
 For five years The Market Street Singers has presented community sing-alongs featuring favorite choral classics, familiar “chestnuts” that singers continue to love no matter how many times they sing them. The success of these “Festivals of Favorites” has led us to offer them as ongoing events, at various venues, including NW Folklife. There has recently been markedly increased interest in choral sing-alongs in the area and we are proud to be part of this exciting trend.

We provide the music, all you have to do is show up and enjoy the fun. This is not designed as a concert performance, but rather a community music making event. Whereas singers of all abilities are welcome, non-singers are welcome to show up to just enjoy listening to the music.

And singers, YOU get to choose what music we do from a list of over 25 titles. Things like… Billings “Africa” and “David’s Lamentation” - Mozart “Ave Verum Corpus” - Biebl “Ave Maria” - Farrant “Call to Remembrance” - Farmer “Fair Phyllis” - Rutter “For the Beauty of the Earth” and “Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind” - Tallis “If Ye Love Me” - JS Bach “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring” - Lassus “Jubilate Deo” - Morley “Now is the Month of Maying” and “April is in My Mistress’ Face” - Vittoria “O Magnum Mysterium” and “O Vos Omnes” - Rene Clausen “Seat Me as a Seal” - Palestrina “Sicut Cervus” - “Sumer is a cumin in” - Brahms “Waldesnacht” - Bennet “Weep O Mine Eyes” -  Randall Thompson “The Road Not Taken” and “Alleluia” – Houston Bright “Rainsong” – Jeffers “I Have Had Singing” – and Joseph Martin “The Awakening.”

A suggested participant donation of $15 will help cover expenses. There is no need to reserve a space, in the unlikely event we run out of music scores, you may have to share with someone. But isn’t this a lovely way to make friends? We do, however, want to make sure we have enough chairs set up. If you plan to attend we request you notify or call 206-465-3296.

SPREAD THE WORD!  There is nothing better than a large crowd of happy people singing music they love, or music they are falling in love with. Pure choral joy. Almost as good as a choral jukebox! Visit the Market Street Singers online for more information visit

The Market Street Singers is a choral ensemble for Ballard that builds connections within diverse communities. Celebrating the joy of choral music among singers and listeners, we aspire to cultivate neighborhood pride with choral arts that are truly community identified.

A Concert for Spring 2016

Saturday, May 21, 7:30pm

Sunday, May 22, 3:00pm

Ballard First Lutheran Church
NW 65th & 20th NW, in Ballard

The Market Street Singers celebrate Spring 2016 with a musical program that is both exciting and diverse. The highlight will be Leonard Bernstein's powerful Chichester Psalms, one of the most beloved contemporary choral masterpieces. The famous second movement solo will be sung by renowned Seattle area male soprano Aaron Norman. We will also be joined by percussionist Memmi Ochi, harpist Michelle Wilcox, and our accompanist Ingrid Verhulsdonk on the organ. Just to prove that there is something for everyone, we will also offer a medley from the hit musical South Pacific and a tribute to the famous glam rock band Queen, with John DeTurk on bass and Mitchell Fund on drums. We will also premiere In Those Fields, a new a cappella choral composition by Mitchell Fund.

This is a free event, but your contributions are always gratefully accepted. We hope to see you there. Please spread the word to your family and friends.
