Making a Joyful Noise

Take that “Midnight Train to Georgia,” famously sung by Gladys Knight and the Pips and groove to “You’re the One that I Want” from the musical Grease. And how could we have a 70’s concert without an ABBA medley? We can’t. We’ll also sing hits from Elton John, Carole King, the Eagles, The Carpenters, Barry Manilow, Fleetwood Mac and more. Concerts are held in the historic sanctuary of Seattle First Baptist Church (1111 Harvard Ave) 3 pm, Sunday, April 28, and in the idyllic woodland setting of The Congregational Church on Mercer Island (4545 Island Crest Way) 3 pm, Sunday, May 5. Street parking and lots adjacent to churches is free on Sundays.

Advance tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets $20/Adults ($25 at the door) and $15/Seniors ($20 at the door). Groups of 10 or more/$10 per person in advance, through BPT and at the door. For direct links to BPT tickets (To buy tickets for 4/28, click here or to buy tickets for 5/5/19, click here), for concert information, click here and to remember last year’s great 60’s concert, click here.
