Seattle Men's Chorus & Seattle Women's Chorus

April 7 & 8
McCaw Hall

Featuring special guest, Randy Rainbow

As we respond to a rising tide of intolerance in our country, SWC and SMC lift their voices in an exuberant and inspiring celebration of Seattle's community, proving that what unites us is stronger than what divides us. Featuring a tour de force choral musical from the creators of Ragtime about civil rights in America, Not In Our Town takes a stand against hate with affirming stories of courage and cooperation, bold songs of solidarity from Dear Evan Hansen, The Greatest Showman, and Melissa Etheridge, and dance-in-the-aisles fun from Pink and Whitney Houston.

Randy Rainbow makes his Seattle debut, adding the type of twisted and riotous take on current events that has made him a social media sensation.
