SilverSounds Northwest is a mixed chorus of retired seniors who believe that “You are never too old to rock and roll!” Known for their clever, themed concerts, SilverSounds Northwest loves to entertain audiences with solos, small ensembles, narration, acting, dance, and choreography.
SilverSounds Northwest Artistic Director
An invaluable member of our NWAA team, Paula’s credits also include the Burien Coalition of the Arts and the Washington Music Educators Association Hall of Fame.
This fun loving group will perform two mainstage shows in the 2018-2019 season. The first is ChristmasSounds in Burien, a festive collaboration with all other NWAA choirs sharing a single stage. In February, several of the SilverSounds members will participate in the annual Cabaret fundraiser, On Broadway. In the spring, SilverSounds is thrilled to announce two showings of their annual spring show for the first time ever, by popular demand! This year, SilverSounds presents What’s in a Name? at the Highline Performing Arts Center on April 6 & 7, 2019, featuring clever name-themed narration, sets, light costuming, choreography, humor and hi-jinks.
Most singers are involved in more than singing, as our shows offer our members the opportunity to entertain audiences with solos, small ensembles, narrating, drama, dance and choreography. This fun-filled group performs regularly around the community.
Other Season Events
SilverSounds is often invited to perform in the community and enjoys sharing their music with others. Some of our appearances have included the Burien Strawberry Festival, Kent Senior Center/Stafford House fundraiser, Merrill Gardens, Wesley Terrace, Judson Park, Normandy Park Senior Activity Center, Fernwood in the Park, and singing the National Anthem for the Tacoma Rainiers at Cheney Stadium. We enjoy performing for others and giving back to the community!
