The Island Chordsmen Plus (mixed gender) barbershop chorus from San Juan Island is presenting two free Ferry Sing gatherings this summer, with the first on Aug. 1 just around the corner. That’s a Thursday afternoon-evening and will feature both the chorus and the all-woman ensemble “Sound Vibrations” that you’ve heard on the Whittier stage in both the Barbershop Bonanza and San Juan Singers shows. The a cappella songs by both groups will evoke your memories from a year ago to more than 60 years ago.
This free concert takes place on the inter-island ferry leaving at 5:30 p.m., where you will walk on the boat, so plan time to find a parking place uptown or have a friend drop you off at the ferry landing. The ferry returns at 8:20 p.m. Taking place during the dinner hour, we suggest you bring your own food for a picnic while the singing mingles with the scenery sliding by the windows.
A free sea cruise with capital entertainment, it doesn’t get any better. The second Ferry Sing will be about a month later in the first week of September, look for another announcement then.
