Renton/Kent/Auburn, WA - Rainier Chorale is looking forward to its 22nd season of bringing music to friends and neighbors in the Renton/Kent/Auburn area. Approximately 70 Chorale members from all around the South Sound come together to infuse magic into each performance. . This year’s events promise to be even more exciting as the Chorale collaborates with local musicians and unique venues to bring even more diversity to the up-coming season.

Upcoming events

December 4th & 5th, 2004 ‘Tis the Season - This year the \Chorale presents classical selections, a small French cantata, popular holiday songs, and some lighter pieces, too. A brass quintet, adds a dramatic addition to ring in the spirit of the yuletide celebration. This promises to be an outstanding event, one that will put you in the holiday spirit at just the right time of year. Bring the entire family -- you won't want to miss it! This concert will be held at Kent United Methodist Church, 11010 SE 248th Street in Kent.

April 2nd & 3rd, 2005 Choral Masterworks - This is the Chorale’s eighth rendition of Choral Masterworks, a variety that includes classics from the Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic and Modern eras. Madrigals, motets, folk song settings and a Brahms drinking song are all a part of this crowd-pleaser. Special guests performing with the Chorale will be the Auburn Valley Columbia Choir, under the direction of Leora Schwitters. This children’s group is fast gaining a fine reputation for serious choral singing in the south Sound area. The concert will be performed in the superbly fine acoustic hall of Kent United Methodist Church 11010 SE 248th Street, Kent.

March 19th, 2005 Raise Your Hand for Rainier Chorale! - In addition to making music, we are pleased to announce the Raise Your Hand for Rainier Chorale! Annual Dinner & Fundraising Auction, to be held at Emerald Downs. We expect dining, dancing, and great company!! If you wish to donate something to the auction please contact the Rainier Chorale at info@therainierchorale.org.

June 18th & 19th, 2005 At the Drive-in Movies - Remember those lazy, hazy, crazy days of the drive-in movies: home-made popcorn, kids tucked in blankets in the back-seat, speaker hanging on the car window, while we enjoyed great musicals, classic pictures, westerns, and sci-fi? Maybe the Chorale can improve on that speaker and bring back memories of the drive-in at their June concert –you’ll be jigging, tapping your toes, and singing along before the night is through. Bring the whole family to Renton’s CARCO Theater, 1717 Maple Valley Highway, for great family fun.
