I am back from more than a few days away and writing up my wonderful travels to NYC-Harlem and my Connecticut Thanksgiving…in the meantime, do not miss these Holiday events…get tickets now.
I highly recommend (and, will be reviewing some of these events): Seattle Symphony’s Holiday Pops (December 9,10,11) and Handel’s Messiah (December 16,17,18), Seattle Men’s Chorus Silver and Soul (December 4-22 various dates), and again at the symphony Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons two ways – one with the tango December 28-29 and Vivaldi Untuxed in a Signature performance December 30; and, to bring in the New Year Classical Soul of Motown December 31, “…Follow the performance with a post-concert party that includes a glass of champagne, a live performance and dancing all the way to the midnight countdown and beyond!.”
This week-end: The Magnolia Chorale…Peace in a Time of War…$12 dollars on-line, $15 at the door. I love their sweet concerts!
For those in the Magnolia Queen Anne, Ballard area hear the Christmas ships caroling Saturday, November 17th, Commodore Park (Magnolia side of Locks) 4:05-4:25 and through the Ballard Locks 8:10-8:30.
The Taproot Theater will do a fun Christmas play Improve in a Pear Tree at Magnolia Art Experience…Sunday December 11th, $5 for children 5 and up and $10 for adults…gingerbread cookies and hot apple cider. Tickets.
Going home for the holidays is a special sort of adventure full of road trips, family traditions, and the crazy characters we call friends and family. This year, Taproot’s Improv Team is bringing you the story of a pair of newlyweds sharing their first Christmas. Using suggestions from the audience, the actors create the characters, traditions and circumstances in, what is to be, a hilarious and unexpected holiday story you won’t forget. No two performances are the same.
Let me know in the comment section what you are doing out there to make the season merry and bright!
