The Sound of the Northwest

April 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

As part of the Katherine L. White Invitational Choral Festival, we are excited to have The Sound of the Northwest perform in the Kay White Hall. The Sound of the Northwest is a community choir founded in 1987 by Juan Huey-Ray for the purpose of preserving and presenting the music of the Black American heritage, particularly the Negro Spiritual. It is one of a small number of choirs nationwide that focus on a repertoire of African American Spirituals, and the only such choir in the Seattle area.  

The Sound of the Northwest strives to enrich the lives of diverse, multi-generational, and multi-cultural audiences and artists. It has a rich history of performing for a wide range of audiences in schools, concert halls, civic centers, and churches of many different denominations. A common feature of Sound of the Northwest appearances has been educational commentary, storytelling, and audience participation, encouraging unity among diverse audience members, stirring pride in the artistic contributions and resilience of the African American community, and providing insight into the African American experience in a way that fosters empathy and understanding.
