For Seattleites: I sing with Radost

I'll sing with Radost at this one-of-a-kind performance. Earlier this week I heard the orchestra in rehearsal and not only do they sound terrific, they will do justice to Johnny's arrangement. Hearing these simple folk tunes, now beefed up with so many musicians instead of an eight piece folk band, was thrilling. My jaw dropped on the first chord.

(Only twice before have I performed with an orchestra, when I danced with the Zivili Kolo Ensemble of Columbus, Ohio. One piece was an orchestral setting of Pamela Lacko Kelley's "Wedding" choreography with the West Palm Beach Florida Symphony Orchestra. The second was to a performance of Enescu's Romanian Rhapsody #2 with the Columbus Ohio Symphony Orchestra. These performances were unique in my experience, until now.)

Please join the Radost Folk Ensemble in a Special Performance:
