Kaleidoscope

October’s concert views song through a kaleidoscope of color. Our experiences of music and color enliven our emotions. From“Bein’ Green” and “Over the Rainbow” to “I See Colors” and “Yellow Bird,” songs mingle with color to ad luster and meaning to life. Song and color, put together, can evoke moods or feelings that are otherwise almost impossible to express.

A Mannheim Merry Christmas

The innovative American musical group, Mannheim Steamroller, has given us a treasured collection of instrumental music for the holiday season. The band played a unique mix of ancient and modern instruments, but especially synthesizers, drums and electric guitar. For this concert, Masterworks will combine the spirit of Mannheim Steamroller with the voices of the chorus to create a unique family holiday celebration.

Harmony Sweepstakes – A Cappella Festival

Harmony Sweepstakes brings together top a cappella talent from around the Pacific Northwest. MCE has hosted this regional competition for decades, and it’s one of the hottest tickets of the year. The winning group, chosen from among tonight’s performers, will have the honor of competing at the National Finals. Tight harmonies, rhythmic beat-boxing, slick dance moves, brilliant original tunes – and with 2019’s popular returning champs, The Baudboys, as hosts.

Spring Into Song

Spring is all about renewal, as the world breathes in a new season of life. Music is a fine way to celebrate the feeling of spring – with songs that speak of hope and a fresh look at the world. Masterworks’ program tonight will open hearts and brighten the spirit with songs like The Road Not Taken, It Might As Well Be Spring, and A Day In The Life of the Sun.

Disney: A Wonderful World of Music

Music lies at the heart of the Disney experience. Most of us can probably hum personal favorites from films that now span more than eighty years. From Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937) to 2018’s Mary Poppins Returns – with modern classics like Frozen and The Lion King in between – there is an ocean of Disney tunes to choose from. In this concert, Masterworks explores that wonderful world of music – Disney style.
