Seattle Men's Chorus' 'Jingle All the Way' concert a truly sensational evening

by Paul Torres - SGN A&E Writer

SEATTLE MEN'S CHORUS
'JINGLE ALL THE WAY'
BENAROYA HALL
December 9
(also in Everett at Everett Civic Auditorium 12/15
and in Seattle 12/16, 12/20, 12/21 & 12/23)


Seattle Men's Chorus kicked off their holiday concert tradition in Seattle on Sunday, December 9 with 'Jingle All the Way.' It's a truly sensational and inspirational evening at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle. The jolly atmosphere is sweetened by the top-notch singing and the hall's warm acoustics. This year's production includes a creative collaboration with A Sensible Theatre Co., a burgeoning Queer-inspired group of diverse community artists. The shows continues through December 23.

The concert kicks off with a fabulous rendition of 'Prepare' by Michael Engelhardt to set the holiday mood for the evening. Highlights include Christmas favorites 'Silver Bells', 'It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year', a rousing Handel's 'Hallelujah' and an emotional 'Do You Hear What I Hear?' There is a nod to Chanukah with Matthew Paul Miller's 'Miracles' with the performance of that song dedicated to the victims and survivors of the Pittsburgh synagogue tragedy.

The amusing versions of Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas is You' and 'Hamildolph' (a Hamilton/Rudolph mash-up) delighted the audience. There is also a sing-along that includes Christmas versions of Village People disco classics. (You have to go to experience this part of the show - 'Macho Man' will never be the same for you.) Even the sneaky Grinch makes an uproarious appearance. The spirited accompanying dance troupe are truly mesmerizing to watch.

The talented vocals of the up-and-coming The Supertonics make their big stage debut and prove that musical talent truly thrives here in Seattle. They are a mixed ensemble of the Seattle Choruses that perform harmony-driven a cappella songs. As directed by Nikki Blackmer, this group proves that they are more than stage-ready (especially with the 'Hamildolph' bit).

Artistic Director Paul Caldwell, now in his third year, conducts with sheer verve and humor. The music talents of Principal Accompanist Evan Stults helps to make this show even more exhilarating. Their collective talents - along with the technical crew - prove that music must be rousing, fun, and heartening in these heavy times of increasing violence in our communities. Through this heartache, there's always the healing power of music.

The SMC's annual performance is a must for locals and visitors alike. It's a cultural institution not only for the LGBTQIA+ community but for anyone one wanting to share in a beautiful and heart-lifting tradition.
