First Congregational Church, 2401 Cornwall, Bellingham 98225

Join us on Saturday, January 7th for a wonderful night of song with the three Nakatani siblings, Lindsey, Danielle and Christopher. All now have graduated with majors in voice (opera) and are looking to further schooling or breaking through into the crowded field of opera performance. It will be a delightful and uplifting evening of song…and don’t we all need that!

The concert is free to all students. $15 suggested donation for adults. No tickets required.
