After three exciting, unique and exceptional concerts to start the season, Cascadia continues bringing quality music to the Methow Valley with the ANNUAL HOLIDAY CONCERT. The Cascadia Chorale under the direction of Dana Stromberger and the Pipestone Orchestra conducted by Matt Armbrust join forces to celebrate the season through music. Selections from Handel’s Messiah will be featured alongside modern swing and jazz, and old familiar carols. The concerts are December 12 and 13 at the Methow Valley Community Center beginning at 7pm. Admission is by donation. Please join us for a joyous evening of community spirit.
NANCY ZAHN AND LAURA LOVE are back by popular demand January 27, 2018 at the Methow Valley Community Center. Their performance at the Merc last year was a treat to remember as the two extraordinary vocalists connected on a level that is rare to see. They will be joined by the band Family Dog in a rousing evening of music to get your circulation flowing. Band members include Todd Eberline-drums, Phil Woras -bass, Terry Hunt -guitar, Wayne Mendro-sax, flute and clarinet, Bob Hougham-trumpet and Tom McNair-trombone. Come and dance away those winter blues listening to the sounds of jazz, soul, motown, funk and even some rock ‘n roll.
