NSCS concert fund-raiser

North Sound Christian School Senior High Choir is holding a benefit concert at 7 p.m. Nov. 18 at Calvary Fellowship, 23302 56th Ave. W. in Mountlake Terrace. The choir will present a concert of Southern gospel (The Crossroads Quartet), choral music (NSCS Singers), and sanctified blues band (The Messenger Band). Each group mentioned above includes members of the North Sound Christian School family.

A free will offering will be taken to raise support for the choir’s trip to sing at Carnegie Hall in May of 2006. The ensemble has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in a select choral Masterworks Performance Concert Series, with other singers from around the country for a five-day Manhattan residency from May 24-28. They will then be involved in a performance in legendary Carnegie Hall accompanied by a full symphony orchestra and professional soloists with guest conductor James Melton at the podium.
