This Tuesday, December 16th, The Seattle Metropolitan Glee Club performs its annual holiday concert, entitled “Journey into Winter”. The concert will be held at Epiphany Church, 1805 38th Avenue in Madrona, and begins at 7:00 p.m. The suggested donation for admission is $10.00.
A women’s choral group with members from Madison Valley and all over the greater Seattle area, the Seattle Metropolitan Glee Club is part of a non-profit organization based in West Seattle. The goal of the members is to have fun singing wonderful and diverse pieces of music while increasing their understanding of music and having fun at the same time. The Seattle Glee Clubs is a 501( c ) 3 non-profit and consists of two different singing groups - the all-women’s group (known as the Met) and the Offbeats, a vocal jazz group.
Every year, the Metropolitan Glee Club performs concerts in December and June, with additional performances at retirement homes around the city. This fall, the group sang at Aegis Living on Madison and Bridge Park in High Point. Consistent participants, the women also sang in the annual Figgy Pudding Caroling Contest downtown, to benefit the Pike Place Senior Center and Food Bank.
Giving back to the community which supports the organization is important. At the concert on December 16th, the Glee Club will be collecting donations of hats, scarves, socks and mittens for Mary’s Place, a charity which supports homeless women and children.
After the first of the year, the Met will be holding auditions for those interested in singing with a wonderful group of women. For more information on the Seattle Glee Clubs and auditioning, please visit their website: www.seattlegleeclubs.org.
