CHINOOK — The Bayside Singers will open their 2016-17 concert series with a Saturday afternoon performance in Chinook on Oct. 22 in the Chinook Event Center at 2:30 p.m. The 40-member chorus will be initiating the use of portable risers with chairs for the first time since their summer purchase, enabling the audience to both hear and see the performers more readily, and giving the singers a better view of conductor Barbara Poulshock.

The purchase of the risers for the non-profit chorus was made possible by a $10,000 grant from the Templin Foundation. Their acquisition will also make it possible for the chorus to perform at other community sites, which could not accommodate their needs in the past.
