Seattle Historical Arts for Kids perform for BMC members and friends Wednesday morning, October 4 at 10:30am at Trinity Lutheran Church. Free and open to the public. These skilled students present the pleasing melodies and beautifully lilting harmonies of French Renaissance dance music and polyphony on lute, harp, violins, and bass and tenor viola da gamba. The ensemble is led from the violin by director Shulamit Kleinerman. Come early and join us for coffee and nibbles in the atrium starting at 9:30.
Then, exclusively for Night Beat at the Firehouse PAC, Scott Henderson directs Bellingham Burlesque of 1927 from the piano. This bawdy, cabaret-style musical takes the wraps off of a traveling Burlesque troupe stopping in prohibition-era Bellingham. Low comedy and high friction on stage end in a revealing act of desperation. Martha Benedict, Martin Bray, Akilah Williams Cariker, Amanda Carpp and the Top Banana, Paul Henderson, bare all through songs, dances and vintage slapstick. Tickets are $20 for all shows on Oct. 5 and 6 at 7:30pm, and Oct. 7, at 3:00 and 7:30. Senior rate ($15) for Saturday matinee. Tickets on sale online, at Village Books and at the door if not sold out.
