Seattle choral fans with an imaginative and powerful mix of original scores,
Celtic, gospel, ethnic and classical music. The choir has been a voice

The People for Puget Sound is
a major state-wide organization comprised of thousands of dedicated and
active members whose mission statment is protecting and restoring the
land, waters and common future of Puget Sound and the Straits. They
are involved in legislative activity, stormwater pollution prevention,
shoreline habitat enhancement, outdoor activities and education.
A major collaborative effort of People for Puget Sound and the City Cantábile
Choir is the OrcaSing. OrcaSing takes place on the summer solstice
weekend on the rocky shores of Lime Kiln State Park on San Juan Island
and has been featured on both 60
Minutes II and on NW
Cable News. At the OrcaSing, the choir sings through special underwater
speakers to pods of orcas as they swim by in an attempt to create interspecies
communication. In the past, the OrcaSing has been a transcendent and profoundly
moving experience for both the choir and audience, and has fostered the
goal of increasing our appreciation and concern for these magnificent,
intelligent creatures. Tragically, the population of resident Orcas has
dropped significantly in the past two decades, raising concerns about
the effects of human-caused pollution in Puget Sound. Part of the proceeds
of the upcoming "FUN-raiser" goes towards supporting the OrcaSing.
