Seattle Men's Chorus Gets Sassy Brassy This Holiday Season
Artistic Director Paul Caldwell conducts A Sassy Brassy Holiday with Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC) December 10-23 at Benaroya Hall. This holiday season over 200 250 joyful voices infuse favorite carols and beloved classics like "Deck the Hall" and "The First Noel" with the warmth of brass and a pinch of sass. They mix in a soaring gospel arrangement of "Joy to the World" with the cheeky and cheerful "Super Gay Christmas," plus a down and dirty Dixieland styling of "Let it Snow."
For close to four decades SMC has presented their unique blend of song, dance, and campy comedy to the Northwest; they have solidified their role as Seattle's biggest Holiday extravaganza. As in years past, SMC will hold Everett and Tacoma area concerts. This year the Everett concert moves to a new venue, The Historic Everett Theatre. Details for those two concerts are online at seattlechoruses.org.
For the sixth consecutive year, SMC is proud to partner with Lifelong for a Holiday Food Drive during the Seattle concerts at Benaroya Hall. All non-perishable goods will be accepted and will be used in Lifelong's food program supporting people living with chronic illnesses, such as HIV/AIDS.
Tickets to Seattle performances are $25-$85. Tickets to the Everett performance are $25-$55. Both Seattle and Everett concert tickets are available at seattlechoruses.org or over the phone at (206) 388-1400. The Seattle area box office is open Monday through Friday 11am-6pm. Tacoma concert tickets are $32 - $55 and available at BroadwayCenter.org.
