The Lynden Choral Society accompanied by the Starry Night Orchestra performs Handel's Messiah.

For more than 100 years, it turns out, the singers of Lynden have united their voices in song for a public performance.

The Lynden Choral Society is made up of around 70 community members from in and around Lynden, WA, who sing for the love of singing. The organization has been in existence, under various names, since at least 1918. Over the years it has presented many types of programs in its fall and spring concert seasons, with frequent performances of Handel's "The Messiah" at Christmastime. From 1972 to 2002, the group was either directed by or accompanied by the late Claire vg Thomas. After she retired, a younger generation assumed leadership and began new collaborations with other local musicians. Since 2004, the choir has been directed by Gerald Rutgers.

Over the course of the last several decades, Walter Trout has been a prolific artist. He’s regularly released offerings from the studio, so this moment of offering a new covers album, Survivor's Blues, is somewhat of a curveball.  His 2017 all-star release, We’re All In This Together, shows no sign of burning out and continues to receive accolades and sales on a global basis, alongside four awards for Blues Rock Album Of The Year. He reflects, ”It’s really overwhelming. How do I follow that up? I’ve always respected guys who went out on a limb, like Neil Young or Bob Dylan. You never know what they’re gonna come out with.”

In the Art Bar: Ron King


“My art is the unknown just beyond the familiar. I begin with a photograph and then go deep into the image itself to free the restless phantasmagorias within the still life. Through Stratomorphic Rendering, a mixed digital media technique that involves painstakingly working through multiple artistically enhanced layers of each image, I coax out the heart of each piece to deliver a visual experience that offers more than reality.”
