Community, Music

The Balkans have been filled with conflict for decades and this presentation by the Seattle Peace Chorus will capture the region’s history through song and dance. The performance will feature a cantata of Balkan music; Temple Beth Am’s Wendy Marcus telling the tale of Sarajevo Haggadah, a 600-year-old Jewish manuscript with the Passover Seder text; and Serge Rachmaninoff’s “Vespers;” colorfully-costumed dancers from the Radost Folk Ensemble; the Dunava Balkan Women’s Chorus; Klapa Doo Wopella; Peter Lippman; and Ruth and Christos Govetas playing traditional Balkan instruments in their band Dromeno. Under the direction of Frederick N. West, the Seattle Peace Chorus has been “promoting peace, one song at a time” since 1983.

There will be a 6:30 pm pre-concert lecture, “Balkan Music, Language, & History,” with Jim Hoath, Balkan specialist; entry to the lecture is free with concert ticket purchase.

Presented by: Seattle Peace Chorus.
Tickets: $20 advance; $18 seniors/students/special needs; $25 at the door.
Doors open: 6:15 p.m.
