PORT TOWNSEND — “This Shining Night,” a concert promising jazzman George Shearing's “Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare” plus music of Canadian composer Srul Irving Glick and Aaron Copland, happens this weekend courtesy of the RainShadow Chorale.

The two performances — 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3:30 p.m. Sunday — will fill Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave., with song. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students ages 10 to 18.

'So much color'

“I love this program because there's so much color in it, both in the use of different voices — men only, women only, and full choir — and in the range of repertoire and texts, from classical to jazz,” said Rebecca Rottsolk, director of the RainShadow singers.

RainShadow, an auditioned chorale, began in 1997 and includes amateur and professional singers.

For information about the chorale and its concerts, visit www.rainshadowchorale.org or phone 360-301-0767.

Tickets for this weekend's performances are available at Crossroads Music, 2100 Lawrence St., and at the door Saturday and Sunday.
