Seattle Men's Chorus does "jazz hands"
Edmonds Center for the Arts becomes a pre-World War II cabaret when Seattle Men’s Chorus presents “Life is a Cabaret”, Saturday March 26, 2011 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available on line or by phone at 425-275-9595; ticket prices are $15-$30.

Returning to ECA for a third season, Seattle Men’s Chorus (SMC) will be joined by special guests The Love Markets featuring Angie Louise and Nick Garrison, and Spectrum Dance Theater to present this richly varied concert which powerfully highlights life in Germany before the Nazi era.

Life is a Cabaret brings to life the free-wheeling high spirits of the pre-war Weimar period with outrageously entertaining music by Kurt Weill, Kander and Ebb (Cabaret), and songs made popular by German icon Marlene Dietrich. Nick Garrison will also join the Chorus with Wilkommen and Cabaret, among others. Spectrum Theater dancers help interpret this riveting chapter of gay history through dance. SMC and The Love Markets’ delightful staging, costumes, and musical arrangements for beloved tunes like Mack the Knife, Love for Sale and Falling in Love Again will not disappoint.

Founded in 1979, the internationally renowned Seattle Men’s Chorus, along with Seattle Women’s Chorus (founded in 2002), are the largest community choruses in America, and the largest gay choruses in the world. Flying House Productions, home of Seattle Men’s Chorus and Seattle Women’s Chorus, ranks third among the state's music organizations with over 300 members of SMC and over 200 members of SWC.

Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA), is a non-profit performing arts facility located in picturesque downtown Edmonds, Washington. Located in the historic original Edmonds High School building, ECA was remodeled and opened in October 2006 to be a cultural resource for the Puget Sound region through performing arts presentations, community partnerships and education outreach programs.

Edmonds Center for the Arts is located at 410 Fourth Avenue North, Edmonds, WA 98020.
