Mission: To invite the opening of people's hearts to love and healing through inspired rehearsals and performances of soul-stirring music.
Deeji Killian, Artistic Director and Conductor
 

Welcome to our new season of song!

 

The Northwest Firelight Chorale is excited to have you join us for another year of soul-stirring music! In the 2018-19 season, our programs will explore two evocative musical eras and an inspiring musical locale. Here's a preview of what's in store... 

 

 

Spend a delightfully festive evening with the Northwest Firelight Chorale this holiday season! Our  not-to-be-missed program will include spectacular arrangements of seasonal favorites sung by the stars of the 50s and 60s. Who can forget Johnny Mathis' "Winter Wonderland," Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby," or Andy Williams' 'Do You Hear What I Hear?" Enjoy these and more as we perform for you with the flair and flavor of that enticing era. It's just our way of wishing you the merriest! (Fruitcake, anyone?)

Join us for our annual fundraising extravaganza where you'll enjoy catered cuisine, a wine bar, a silent auction, table seating, and elegant decor. Sit back and relax as we serenade you with songs from the remarkable era that produced the Great American Songbook, the swinging sounds of the Big Bands, countless Hollywood movie musicals, and even the beginnings of urban cowboy music. Journey with us as we recall a time nearly eighty years ago when artists like Glenn Miller, Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and Frank Sinatra first recorded "The Standards" that we know and love. Dust off your finest 1940s attire and get set to boogie woogie with the bugle boys, the WACs, and the WAVEs of yesteryear.

In July 2018 we had the amazing opportunity to visit and perform in Ireland while on tour. We immediately fell in love with her lush landscape, welcoming people, lively pubs, and of course evocative music. Now we are so excited to share the music of Ireland with you! You'll hear stunning arrangements of "Danny Boy" and "Wild Mountain Thyme." You'll move in rhythm to joyful, rollicking Irish jigs and reels, and enjoy stirring selections from Ireland's famed groups, Celtic Women and Celtic Thunder. And of course, the evening would not be complete without a good ol' Irish pub sing-along! Join us for an intimate evening of Ireland's most treasured music, sure to lift your spirits and warm your hearts.

Notes from our 2018 European tour


After more than a year of anticipation and rigorous planning, the Northwest Firelight Chorale departed Seattle for a two-week-long, multi-city European tour. On June 25th, almost eighty Firelighters and friends congregated in the Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport wide-eyed and ready to sing, spread joy, and connect with new communities.
