Northwest Boychoir features local singers in holiday shows
December 4, 2012
The Northwest Boychoir is back with its 34th annual presentation of “A Festival of Lessons & Carols” concert series. Included in the nine regional performances are two Issaquah voices: from Northwest Boychoir, Benjamin Richardson, 14, and from Vocalpoint! Seattle, Nick Borkowski, 16.
The singers are part of the two musical groups that are combining for the 90-member holiday chorus.
Patterned after the Christmas Eve observance at King’s College in Cambridge, England, “A Festival of Lessons & Carols” consists of nine holiday readings, each followed by a traditional carol performed by the choir, and another carol sung by the choir and audience.
With concerts in Seattle, Bothell and Lynnwood, performances will run Dec. 7-23. Tickets cost $10 to $25 and can be purchased in advance by calling 206-524-3234 or online at www.nwchoirs.org, which also includes individual show times, dates and locations.
