 May 2018 


Every other May, Harstine Island Community Choir enjoys showcasing music from across our nation. The May 2018 concerts focus on folk songs from different regions, starting with Simple Gifts from Appelatia, moving south featuring songs such as Oh! Susanna, moving westward for songs like Home on the Range and The Colorado Trail, and then spotlighting songs from Alaska and Hawaii. You will tap your toes to the banjo and fiddle, enjoy the cello and string accompaniments as well as the many different styles of accompaniment from the piano. Enjoy the folk songs you hold dear while discovering songs from other regions that are equally delightful. Remember, the 3rd weekend in May is the weekend to experience great choral music in a relaxed family setting with informative historic information presented with songs you enjoy.

After the program, stroll down Railroad, roast marshmallows, enjoy wagon and kiddie train rides, shop, play games and win prizes. All these events are free! HOLIDAY MAGIC is a joint effort between the Shelton Downtown Merchants and Kristmas Town Kiwanis with music coordinated by Harstine Island Community Choir, and is a perfect place to bring in the season with family and friends, while supporting our community’s choirs and businesses.

Cold Winter Nights Christmas Concert

Every Sunday afternoon at the Harstine Island Community Hall, you can find singers from across the county busily preparing for the Harstine Island Community Choir’s annual family Christmas concert. This event is eagerly anticipated as a highlight of the season for many in our community. It is an opportunity to hear quality choral presentations without an admission price, but with donations appreciated. In true community spirit, the choir has expanded its members, as singers from the Bridge Community Church on the Island have joined in the festive preparations. In turn, many members of the choir will be joining the Lessons and Carols service at the church on Christmas Eve.

“Cold Winter Nights” features carols from Scandinavia nations, which means many new songs to enjoy and also includes some of your favorite Christmas carols. We are working toward a collaboration with several local Scandinavian choirs, so more information is pending!

The choir members look forward to seeing you at either of their concerts:

Saturday, December 8th, 3PM SHS Performing Arts Center

3737 N Shelton Springs Rd., Shelton 98584

Sunday, December 9th, 3PM Harstine Island Community Hall

Christmas Eve -  Candlelight and Choir

Are you looking for a special Christmas Eve Service December 24th? Members of the Harstine Island Community Choir join singers of Bridge Community Church on Harstine Island to share music together with the congregation, a candlelight service, and a moving sermon for both introspection and inspiration.


Harstine Choir was organized and is operated for public music education and is dedicated to performance, community service, and leadership in the arts. Our mission is to teach and perform choral works to interested persons of all ages, to participate in community service activities, and to develop and maintain public interest in vocal arts. To do this, we perform for donations only throughout Mason county. We support and assists with music for events like the Shelton Tree Lighting Ceremony. We perform for local fund-raising projects such as Pioneer Arts and Crafts Fair. We promote the opportunity to experience the joy of choral music at events such as Soup & Sound and the Shelton and North Mason Timberland Library Programs. If we could support your program to make Mason County an even better place to live, contact director Elizabeth Berndt to discuss possibilities.
