Good songs, good times at Mostly Americana

April 13, 2010

Yearning for a little apple pie, big band and crooning quartets?

The Fourth of July may be far off but you can have it all by attending Issaquah High School’s fifth annual Mostly Americana chorale concert to honors veterans at 7 p.m. April 17 at the Pacific Cascade Freshman Campus.

With more than 350 performers from local schools and Breath of Aire, a regional Northwest community choir, singing patriotic songs, swing, show tunes, gospel, barbershop, spiritual and rock songs, the event promises to be an evening of fun.

In addition to allowing students to practice with professionals, proceeds from the event go to help the schools pay for travel expenses for the many shows their chorale groups are invited to across the country.

But it isn’t just the songs and fundraising that stirs up emotions; it’s whom the songs are for, said Barbara Irish, the school’s chorale director. Read more
