Those Fabulous Forties!
Our Annual Fundraiser and Gala

Join us for our annual fundraiser extravaganza where you will enjoy catered cuisine, a wine bar, a silent auction, and more!

You'll hear songs from the remarkable era that produced The Great American Songbook, the swinging sounds of the Big Bands, countless Hollywood movie musicals, and the beginnings of urban cowboy music. Dust off your finest 1940s attire and journey back to a time nearly 80 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 today.

Buy your tickets early! In past years, this popular event has sold out. And after March 4th, ticket prices will increase!

Make your entree selections when purchasing tickets. We have two delicious options this year: Northwest Surf & Turf (wild salmon with chicken piccata) or Quinoa Garden Croquettes.

Fill the New Year with Music and Joy!

We were thrilled by our audiences' enthusiastic reception of our three holiday concerts! It made our season all the brighter, and hopefully yours, too.

As always, a highlight for us was performing for audiences at Mirabella and Skyline senior residences. Our program of holiday classics and arrangements from the '50s and '60s was a hit!

NWFC Opening for Emmet Cahill on February 8th!

The Northwest Firelight Chorale is delighted to announce that, for the third year in a row, we will be singing with Emmet Cahill, Ireland's most exciting young tenor! 

Emmet will perform many of the songs from his brand-new album of traditional Irish songs, plus Broadway standards, nostalgic favorites and church hymns. And no Emmet Cahill concert is complete without the ever-popular "request medley" segment, which often brings surprises from the audience!

Friends of the NWFC will receive a 10% discount when they purchase tickets online here. The discount code is IRISHTENOR2019 (all caps).

Save the Date for our Spring Concert!

And speaking of Ireland ... In July 2018 we had the amazing opportunity to visit and perform in that wonderful country 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 Woman 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.

Dates (all shows at 7:30 p.m.):
Saturday June 1st at Peace Lutheran Church, West Seattle
Friday June 7th and Saturday June 8th at Ballard First Lutheran Church


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