SEATTLE, WA—Seattle Men’s Chorus (SMC) is set to perform Motown and More, a soulful celebration of the hit music that emerged from the 1960’s Detroit record label, launching some of the most successful Black artists of the 20th century and forever changing America. This concert has been a long time in the making after its previous cancelation when arts organizations shut down in spring of 2020. Following a successful return to stage in December 2021 for the annual holiday tradition, the collective voices of the chorus are ready to grace audiences once again.
SMC will be feature ensemble group, The Supertonics, and be joined by guest artists Robin and Alexandria J. Henderson. The mother and daughter duo will combine their acting and vocal talents to assist in bringing the story of this musical era to life.
