Home will be where the heart — and soul and song — is when San Juan Island’s community chorus showcases its annual spring concert in back-to-back performances beginning Saturday, April 13 at San Juan Community Theatre. Perhaps better known as the San Juan Singers, the chorus will present its spring concert Sunday, April 14, starting at 5 p.m. at the Community Theatre as well.

Directed by Angel Michaels, the San Juan Singers’ collage of music featured in the spring concert is either written about the Pacific Northwest and Canada, or by composers under the influence of the Northwest’s country and islands. Much of the music speaks of the harbors, rivers, and woodlands that characterize the part of the world where the four seasons reign supreme.

Featured composers include Grammy nominee and San Juan Island resident Morton Lauridsen, and Canadian Donald Patriquin, as well as a new piece from Friday Harbor’s own Mary WillAllen. In addition, the group will perform folk songs by Gordon Lightfoot, Ian & Sylvia, and Allister MacGillvray.

Tickets: $15 adults, $8 student reserved, $5 student RUSH one hour before the show. (SJCT Box Office is open Tuesdays—Fridays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; purchase tickets online at www.sjctheatre.org.) Business partner for the spring concert is Lake Kennedy McCulloch CPAs.
