Two anniversaries bookend 2018-2019 season for Seattle Men's Chorus and Seattle Women's Chorus

The Seattle Women's Chorus (SWC) leap into their 15th year of concerts with 'Hear Me Roar' in October and the Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC) bring the season to a close with 'Summer of' '69,' a musical commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. In between SMC presents their annual holiday concert 'Jingle All the Way' in December and 'Believe: The Music of Cher' in March. In April SWC presents 'Legends of Rock.' Special surprise concert guests will be announced in the coming months.

SWC expands their outreach to South Puget Sound by adding a new venue in Burien to their concert schedule. In addition a new mixed ensemble group, comprised of members from both SMC and SWC, will make their debut at the 2018 holiday concert. Each season they will perform tight-harmony, contemporary a cappella pieces at community events and select SMC and SWC concerts.

Season subscriptions are on sale now. Single tickets go on sale on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.

Seattle Women's Chorus
'Hear Me Roar'

This blowout concert marks 15 years on stage. It's filled with throwback favorites, pop extravaganzas, and fresh choral sounds that mark where the chorus has been&and where they are going! The music of Katy Perry ('Roar'), Melissa Etheridge ('I Run for Life') and Alicia Keys ('Superwoman') illuminate stories of strength, survival, and hope as the worlds of disco, Broadway and Hollywood blend together for an epic celebration.

Dates: 10/12 @ 8pm, 10/13 @ 2pm & 8pm at Seattle First Baptist Church (1111 Harvard Ave at E Union St.); 10/20 @ 8pm at Highline Performing Arts Center (401 S 152nd St, Burien)

Seattle Men's Chorus
'Jingle All the Way'

SMC is ringing in the season with a high-spirited celebration that brings together all your favorites: beloved carols, fresh takes on holiday classics, and show-stopping dazzlers that will have you on your feet! Featuring 'Silver Bells,' 'Do You Hear What I Hear,' 'Jingle Bell Rock' and many more moments of pure Holiday joy.

Dates: 12/8 @ 3pm & 7:30pm at Rialto Theater (310 S 9th St, Tacoma); 12/9 @ 7:30pm at Benaroya Hall (3rd & Union, Seattle); 12/15 @ 7:30pm at Everett Civic Auditorium (2415 Colby Ave, Everett); 12/16 @ 8pm, 12/20, 12/21 @ 7:30pm, 12/23 @ 2pm & 7:30pm at Benaroya Hall (3rd & Union, Seattle)

Seattle Men's Chorus
'Believe: The Music of Cher'
With Special Guest Chad Michaels

Six decades of #1 hits. 100 million albums sold. Countless reinventions. No other diva compares to the Goddess of Pop and her groundbreaking success as a music, movie, and style icon. SMC packs McCaw Hall with all the songs, sparkle and sequins you'd expect from the ultimate Cher tribute. Guest-starring Chad Michaels, the uncanny Cher impersonator who hair-flipped his way to the championship of 'RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars.'

Dates: 3/30 @ 8pm & 3/31 @ 2pm at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall (321 Mercer St, Seattle)

Seattle Women's Chorus
'Legends of Rock'

Decades ago, women like Janis Joplin and Carly Simon erupted onto the mainstream rock scene, blowing a hole through the stage wall that generations of women rockers have burst through. This concert is a loud and proud ode to the trailblazing singer-songwriters who weren't afraid to raise their voices and make a scene: Patti Smith, Joan Jett, Alanis Morissette, Florence Welch, Tina Turner, Debbie Harry, and more groundbreaking artists.

Date: 4/27 @ 2:00pm at Benaroya Hall (3rd Ave & Union St, Seattle)

Seattle Men's Chorus
'Summer of '69'

Woodstock. The moon landing. Vietnam. Stonewall. In the summer of 1969, current events churned into a psychedelic era of rebellion and change. SMC transports us back to this vibrant year through the chart-topping, culture-defining music that blared through turntables and transistor radios. Joining with a coalition of LGBTQ choruses across the country, we also present a thrilling new musical theater work that tells the stories of the Stonewall riots and the birth of the struggle to live life out loud, a message that still resonates today.

Dates: 6/21 @ 8pm & 6/22 @ 2pm at Benaroya Hall (3rd Ave & Union St, Seattle)
