Join the Illumni Mens Chorale this weekend in Seattle and Tacoma as they explore just what American music is, in concerts at Christ Episcopal in Seattle and Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma

The program sweeps from Spanish Renaissance music written by Aztecs in Mexico City to 18th-century hymn writer William Billings, from “Deep River” to “Shenandoah” and from Rogers and Hammerstein to Morten Lauridsen, there’s something here for everyone, sung by the deep, resonant voices of the Seattle-based Illumni.

The featured soloist is soprano Marlette Buchanan, who’s been the lead soloist for the Fisk Jubilee Singers, and barbershop quartet 4.0, who just took the highest score in the American Barbershop Society’s Division IV.

3 p.m. May 4 at Christ Episcopal, 4548 Brooklyn Ave. NE, Seattle.

3 p.m. May 5 at Lagerquist Hall, Pacific Lutheran University, 12180 Park Ave. S., Tacoma.

Suggested donation $10. 206-659-5894, illumnimenschorale.com, brownpapertickets.com
