She has been involved in salmon disease research at a Federal facility for over 20 years. She has been a Science Day coordinator/presenter for area schools, a member of local Search and Rescue groups, and a coordinator for Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). She has been a 4-H and Girl Scout leader, and is an avid fisher-person.
Northwest Girlchoir transforms the lives of girls and young women through outstanding music education, dynamic choral performances, and an enduring community. Led by Artistic Director Sara Boos, choristers learn musicianship, vocal technique, performance skills, and participate in mainstage concerts, outreach events, and collaborations, touching thousands of audience members with their critically-acclaimed choral sound and artistry. Their vision is a world where everyone is transformed by the beauty of choral music and the power of women’s voices.
Rainer Youth Chorus
Their mission: Changing Lives Through Song. RYC is a non-profit community music education and choral performance organization in South King County. Each week, 100 youth from different backgrounds and communities gather to make music. With six ensembles that frequently perform together, singers in grades 2 and up experience the transformational power of artistic choral music.
Father/daughter duo Bob Jackson and Lynn Applegate have been singing and playing folk music together for over 40 years. They perform locally at the Northwest Folklife Festival, on a radio show, and at a variety of community concerts. Bob is an accomplished banjo and guitar player who enjoys playing sea shanties, bluegrass, folk music, and comedic songs. Lynn specializes in contemporary folk music and re-configuring traditional music of all genres.
The Whateverly Brothers
The Whateverly brothers have been performing for wide ranges of audiences – young and old, small and large alike – for over a decade and wherever the Brothers go, the fun follows. The Whateverly Brothers grew out of three friends enjoying playing music together. Starting as a maritime music group, they soon followed their wide interests and backgrounds into many styles and genres including full Celtic and Yule sets. Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister and Rob Kneisler, all seasoned folk music collectors, performers, and multi-instrumentalists, have delighted audiences with their varying repertoire, shimmering harmonies, striking arrangements, and offbeat humor. A power group, tight and expressive.
William Pint & Felicia Dale
Prepare for an intoxicating blend of traditional and modern music reflecting the immense vitality of those who live and work on the sea. Pint and Dale’s music fits into the world of modern folk, rock and popular song, but it’s rich with the myth, narrative, rhythm, rhyme, and lyric associated with the days of the tall ships. With extraordinary vocals and guitar, octave mandolin, Irish pennywhistles, fiddles, ukulele percussion, and the exotic sounds of the vielle-à-roue or hurdy gurdy, William Pint & Felicia Dale bring an energetic and contemporary spirit to their material.
Endolyne Children’s Choir
Teaching the joy of singing in a community setting that fosters self-confidence, teamwork, and a lifelong appreciation of music. Endolyne Children’s Choir is a non-audition choir, serving and uplifting the greater West Seattle community. We strive to build both musical skills and appreciation, in support of children’s overall development.
