The Market Street Singers Programs
In May of 2012, "Turn the World Around - Music With a Message" was our spring concert with a diverse program covering themes such as social justice, equality, and world peace. The highlight was a work called "Ballad for Americans" featuring soloist Michael Delos.
"Holiday Joy to Go!" was our annual Holiday concert, performed for the first time publically at Ballard First Lutheran in December of 2011. As has been our tradition, we also performed at a number of nursing homes including one of our favorites, The Hearthstone.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Christmas 2012 we performed at Echo Glen Children's Center in Snoqualmie for the juveniles that have been incarcerated there. The program was very well received and we have been invited back for the 2013 holiday season. We have been looking for an opportunity to perform at one of the prisons in the area. The logistics of this have proved to be a challenge as it seems likely we would need to rent a bus for travel as well as to meet the prison's need for controlled access. Additional funding for this would be a great help.
