Pianothon, the first concert in the 2012-2013 Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island Chamber Music series, had a full house recently.

“The audience was enthralled by the performances of our talented island pianists, including one 9-year-old as well as one 80-year-old graduate of Oberlin Conservatory. It was a fabulous evening!” said Libby Roberts in a press release.

Their next concert will be A Broadway Cabaret. The stars will shine brightly at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9 and 10 with staged performances of songs from seven blockbuster musicals: “The Fantastics,” “The King And I,” “West Side Story,” “Fiddler On The Roof,” “A Little Night Music,” “My Fair Lady” and “Wicked.”

This will feature talented actors from Whidbey Island, including Kate Matteson, Rich Doyle, Ken Merrell and Gretchen d’Armand, as well as one visiting young star from Broadway, Gloria Makino.

Tickets for both performances are available at the door and also at Moonraker Books in Langley and Habitat for Humanity in Freeland. Tickets cost $20 for adults or $10 for students.
