Seattle Men’s Chorus concert benefits CADA

Seattle Men’s Chorus will whisk away a Whidbey Island audience to the musical world of Broadway’s Stephen Schwartz, the man behind the music of “Wicked,” “Pippin,” “Godspell” and other classics 7 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at South Whidbey High School.

The chorus will sing many of his popular Broadway smash-hits, plus some additional rarely-performed tunes.

Proceeds from the concert help support Citizens Against Domestic and Sexual Abuse.

CADA has served victims of domestic and sexual violence since 1979. Last year, staff members provided services to 1,084 women, men and children and 1,557 bed nights at Marjie’s House, an emergency shelter.

Services include a 24-hour hotline and free, confidential assistance for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, elder abuse, rape, sexual harassment, stalking, child abuse, child sexual abuse or neglect and other forms of interpersonal violence.

Seattle Men’s Chorus is comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds.
