The Rainier Beach High School Multicultural Festival, a taste of Southeast Seattle cuisine and a showcase of the talent of Southeast Seattle area youth has long been credited with creating the model for multicultural programming in the arts for the Seattle School District; promoting an atmosphere of unity, tolerance and ethnic awareness among the student body as well as the wider community. In keeping with tradition, this year’s Concert, a major cultural and community event in Southeast Seattle, will include participation by students from neighboring schools, as well as alumni who return each year to join in the festivities.
Program highlights will feature an Alumni Choir directed by alumnus Makela Steward, the return of the African Dance and Drum Ensemble directed by Artist in Residence JahBreeze, the Southshore Steel Pans Ensemble, with special guest appearances by Traditional performing artists Orlando Morales and Talalotu Moe providing musical accompaniment for our Filipino and South Pacific Islander students.
This program is sponsored by City of Seattle Department of Parks & Recreation – Rainier Beach Community Center, Community Kitchens Northwest, Rainier Beach Community Empowerment Coalition and Rainier Beach High School PTSA.
