CATHLAMET - On Saturday, April 16, five area musicians will travel to Cathlamet for a special family musical event. "An Evening of Easy Listening: The Peninsula Strings and the Two Sopranos" will be presented at the recently restored Cathlamet Pioneer Church, off Main Street. The concert follows a special dinner at the St. James Family Center to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the St. James Family Center and The Friends of Skamokawa.
Musical performers for this concert are Barbara Bate, Marjorie Cochrane, Rosemary Ginther, Suzanne Leonard, and Andrea Patten. The program, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., including a brief intermission, will feature familiar melodies, from "Simple Gifts" to "Danny Boy," toe-tapping dance tunes, and vocal selections, both comic and romantic. A special feature will be the presentation and playing of the newly donated Hardman baby grand piano.
The Cathlamet Pioneer Church steeple is visible from State Route 4, halfway between Naselle and Longview. Tickets are available at the Bank of the Pacific in Cathlamet and Naselle, at the Rosburg Store, SR 4 and Altoona Road, as well as at the door.
