Vocal Jazz: 

Vocal Jazz had a busy Saturday. They started with a great set at the Bremerton High School Jazz Festival and spending the day listening to other high school vocal jazz groups. After, they ended the day singing to supporters of BPA at the annual Spotlight Dinner.

On Friday, October 26, Concert Choir sang with Gonzaga University Concert Choir at the Bastyr University Chapel. It was a lovely evening of "Dreaming and Singing a Future of Hope". The chapel is a beautiful location with amazing acoustics. It was a night to remember. Tonight is the Fall Choir Concert. All six choirs sing pieces by contemporary female composers. Although united in theme, the concert will feature music from many different genres, including jazz, American roots music, South African and Japanese folk music, African American spirituals and gospel, and contemporary choral music.
