The 2019 Catholic High School Choir Festival has been POSTPONED - New Concert Date is Thursday, March 28, 2019
The Archdiocese of Seattle is proud to present the Catholic High School Choir festival which is now in its 19th year at Benaroya Hall! The choir features choirs from ten area Catholic High Schools performing both as individuals and as part of a massed choral community. Our guest conductor for the the 2019 Festival is composer and scholar, Dr. Andrea Ramsey.
Hailing from the isle of Oahu, Makana is an internationally acclaimed slack-key guitarist, singer, composer, philosopher, activist, and one of Hawaii’s cultural ambassadors to the world. Now, he is hitting the Benaroya Hall stage, for a one-night-only musical masterpiece. Virtuosic and versatile, Makana’s music defies description. He uses over one hundred tunings to fashion a massive, resonant, symphonic sound without use of loop pedals or gimmicks. An exhilarating ride through the breadth of slack key, folk, rock, bluegrass, ethnic and jazz, infused with the spirit of Hawaii. Don't miss this amazing “slack-rock” performance.
This Live @ Benaroya Hall presentation does not include the Seattle Symphony.
