32nd Street Singers

The 32nd Street Singers are a new four-part harmony ensemble with passion and humor. Most of the group grew up in Columbia City, Seward Park and Mount Baker. They started singing together at Franklin High School in the late 60s. The group's repertoire includes spiritual classics, melodic English and French ballads, plus baby boomer favorites, including the music of James Taylor, the Mamas and the Papas and the Beatles.

This free concert, which is part of Harvest the Arts, is at 3pm on Sunday Nov 6 at the Mount Baker Community Club, 2811 Mount Rainier Drive

fright on 44th

The Roberson family will again create a fright on Halloween that will scare and entertain adults and youth on Halloween day, October 31, 2011.
