Cascade Foothills Chorale to perform
Cascade Foothills Chorale is preparing to entertain Plateau listeners with its glorious harmonies.
Performances of “Music in Nature” are scheduled for 7 p.m. May 30 and 2:30 p.m. May 31 in the Enumclaw High School auditorium.
This performance of “Music in Nature” will take audience members traveling over the mountains, through the trees and across the prairies to experience the wonder of a “Dakota Dawn” and the grandeur of a western “Sunset.” The seasons will pass with “A Hint of Autumn” and a winter “Snowfall.” Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to perform with the chorale, helping to create a rainstorm, as people of the Northwest celebrate the coming of summer as “The Rain Is Over and Gone.”
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for seniors/students.
Cascade Foothills Chorale is a nonprofit, publicly-supported foundation. The group has been active on the Plateau for more than 30 years and had its first concert in 1978 under the direction of the late Bob Estby.
