100VoicesLacey, Washington — Saint Martin’s University students will lend their vocal talent to the sixth annual “100 Voices Concert,” hosted by South Puget Sound Community College on Saturday, March 3. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. on the main stage of the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts on the SPSCC campus, 2011 Mottman Road SW, Olympia, Washington.

For the concert, the Saint Martin’s University Chorale, directed by Associate Professor of Music Darrell Born — together with the South Puget Sound Community College Choirs, directed by Molly McNamara, and the Opera Pacifica Chorus and the Olympia Chamber Orchestra, both directed by Claudia Simpson-Jones — will perform an English translation of Brahms’ “A German Requiem.”

The evening is part of the Olympia Chamber’s season, so the orchestra will present other pieces. Additionally, Surabhi Mundada, the winner of the Olympia Music Teachers’ Association concerto competition, will perform a movement from Giovanni Paisiello’s “Concerto in F Major” with the orchestra.

Admission is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, and $5 for children under 12 years old and students and staff of Saint Martin’s University and South Puget Sound Community College, with identification. Tickets are available at or by calling 360-753-8586.
