NWRS season line-up includes magical Christmas music, The Coats and a concert of 'Love, Lust and Laugher'

We hope you will consider joining Northwest Repertory Singers for one or more of our concerts in our 2012-2013 season. We have an exciting season line-up that you surely won’t want to miss:

  • The season starts Dec. 15 and 16 with “Strike the Harp, Ring the Bells, Sound the Oboe.” This will be the perfect concert to get you truly in the holiday spirit.
  • The Coats, a vocal band extraordinaire that has performed for the President and has been on stage with The Beach Boys and Trisha Yearwood, return for a repeat performance March 9 with NWRS. This popular group has strong local ties and performed with NWRS 10 years ago.
  • Finishing the season May 19 will be a not-to-miss concert entitled “Love, Lust and Laughter.” It will feature works by the infamous P.D.Q. Bach, as well as by Brahms, Lauridsen and others.

Details about these concerts, including performance times, pre-concert lectures, venue and tickets, are available at www.NWRS.org. Won’t you mark your calendars now for these concerts? Season tickets are also available.


Strike the Harp, Ring the Bells, Sound the Oboe | An Evening with The Coats | Songs of Love, Lust & Laughter



One of the most important things you can do for Northwest Repertory Singers is to introduce others to our music. We truly believe in our mission “to enrich and educate through the presentation of creative choral repertoire performed at the highest artistic level.” Our continuing challenge is to increase the visibility of NWRS so people in Pierce County and beyond know what we offer. Could we ask you directly and unabashedly to invite people to come with you to our concerts this upcoming season – people who have not yet attended? You have our heartfelt thanks for doing so.

For the first time in our 12-year-history, we have raised ticket prices nominally this year for two of our concerts – our Christmas concert and our March 19 concert with The Coats. Tickets for these concerts will increase just $2 – to $20 general admission and $17 for seniors, students and military. Tickets for our final concert on May 19 will remain at $18 and $15. By the way, season tickets are available for $49 general admission and $45 for seniors, students and military.

NWRS to perform at Total Experience Gospel Choir 39th anniversary celebration



One final note: On Oct. 28 the Northwest Repertory Singers, along with two other groups, joined the Total Experience Gospel Choir for its 39th anniversary concert at First Baptist Church in Seattle. It was an emotional and joyous evening, and we were honored to be invited to share in the celebration.
