San Juan Island’s community chorus sings its way through the century on April 4 at 7:30 p.m. and April 5 at 5 p.m. at the San Juan Community Theatre.

Led by Angel Michaels, the San Juan Singers share music that dates back to 1900 and all the way through 2001, representing a variety of aspects of life.

“Our community has done it all: fishing, fighting, farming and ferrying,” Michaels said. "There’s always a song to sing, through good times and bad.”

Expect to hear folk songs, popular songs and choral classics from such composers as Samuel Barber, Randall Thompson and Irving Berlin. There might even be some animal voices mixed in (the songs of whales, anyone?). And expect to laugh and to reflect.

Featured guests include island flautist Anna Maria de Freitas, harpist Mary WillAllen, the Friday Harbor Elementary School Chorus and That Berlin Bunch stage band.

The concerts’ Business Partner is Kennedy McCulloch Forsyth CPAs. Tickets are $17 for adults and $19 student reserved, with $5 student RUSH on available seats at the door.

The SJCT box office is open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and one hour before each performance. Call 378-3210 or buy tickets online at www.sjctheatre.org.
