Folk Choir Sings

Free Range Folk Choir’s spring concert will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, at the Vashon High School auditorium.

The awakening of spring will be celebrated when the choir, directed by Shane Jewell, will perform music, including Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” along with a variety of uplifting songs from around the globe.

Everyone is welcome at the family-friendly show with a suggested donation of $5 to $10.

Press Presents

“Collectors’ Conversation,” a special event that is part of the Quartermaster Press 25-Year Retrospective at Vashon Center for the Arts, takes place at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, at VCA.

The “collectors,” who own art that they have purchased from exhibiting artists, or those who are inspired to collect art from other genres, are invited to participate.

Della Mae Performs

Della Mae, a Nashville-based all-female string band, will play at Vashon Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The concert will feature favorites as well as new songs from the band’s recently released album. Since forming in Boston in 2009, the band has established a reputation as an energetic and crowd-pleasing act with a fan base from around the world.

Versatile instrumentalists and vocalists, the five women of Della Mae draw from a variety of influences to create a sound that combines timeless lyrics, strong storytelling and an unmistakably contemporary sensibility. The show is at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at VashonCenterfortheArts.org or at the ticket desk at VCA.

Yoga at Open Space

Ronly Blau, a certified Yoga instructor and Ayurvedic practitioner, will bring her skills to Open Space for Arts & Community this spring, with a variety of classes taking place in the facility each week.

Designed to nourish the mind-body, awaken awareness and unify spirits, Blau’s mindful flowing yoga class incorporates pranayama, meditation and Ayurveda. Cohesive and creative pose sequencing are influenced by her experience as a professional dancer. Blau emphasizes mindfulness as a reflection of a long-time practice in vipassana meditation.
