If nighttime is beautiful, then surely nighttime overlooking water is doubly so. The Vashon Island Chorale celebrates the various moods of an evening at the water. Highlights include the acclaimed settings of James Agee's "Sure on this shining night" by Samuel Barber and Morten Lauridsen. Arrangements by Aaron Copland of traditional American tunes join William Averitt's dramatic and optimistic "The Song We Sing." "At the Water's Edge," a suite by Kevin Seigfried on texts of Sarah Orne Jewett, reflects on a Maine seaside village, just as Bronwyn Edwards's "Seashore" depicts the coast of our own Vashon Island.

The Vashon Island Chorale engages, enriches, and unites
our island community by providing opportunities for all people to participate in, learn about and
enjoy fine chorale music.
