Musical banquet at Snoqualmie Point Park

Join Pacific MusicWorks and the Mount Si Chamber Choir for a “Musical Banquet,” a free, open-air concert 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, on the lawn at Snoqualmie Point Park. This concert features some of the greatest hits of the 17th century performed in an inspiring natural setting.

The concert will begin with an all-women’s acapella ensemble from the Mount Si Chamber Choir performing contemporary American and French-Canadian pieces. Following, internationally renowned lutenist and conductor Stephen Stubbs will lead a chamber ensemble of singers and musicians in a program entitled “A Musical Banquet,” based on a Robert Dowland collection from 1610.

Artists include: lutenist Stephen Stubbs, baroque harpist Maxine Eilander, violinist Tekla Cunningham, and sopranos Catherine Webster and Erin Calata.

Snoqualmie Point Park is located at 37580 SE Winery Road. Heading east on I-90, take Exit 27, turn right and head up the hill to the left. From North Bend, drive up North Bend Way and go under the Exit 27 overpass, continuing up the hill to the park.

This musical event is sponsored by the Snoqualmie Arts Commission and 4Culture.
