One of the Northwest’s most beloved entertainers, the late Ed Aliverti, will be honored at this year’s Holiday Magic concert presented Saturday by the 117-voice Sno-King Community Chorale, under the direction of Frank DeMiero. The entire Aliverti family, including Ed’s mother, will be at both the 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. performances at Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 4th Ave. N. The musical tribute will include specially commissioned works by the legendary Anita Kerr.
The Holiday Magic concert has become an annual favorite and this year’s theme, “A Family Affair,” will invite you to magically jump back to 1941 and WWII, to sing favorite holiday carols by the fireplace, reminisce and even share a story or two. Dancers from Olympic Ballet and the incredible Sno-King Community Chorale Orchestra, with Concertmistress Bobbi McBride, will be featured for the first time in the Chorale’s holiday show.
“Our concerts are the best buy in town,” said Chorale president Julie Waterman. Adults are $20, seniors and students $15 and children 12 and under, $10. Groups of 10 or more receive a discount. Tickets are available by calling 425-275-9595 or by using the form on http://www.sno-kingchorale.org
A limited number of the Brothers Four Golden Anniversary CD, on which the Chorale appears, will be available at intermission for $20.
