December 2020

Island Consort is an umbrella program of Whidbey Island Arts Council--with 40 years of service to the Island arts community, is is the longest-running arts non-profit on Whidbey.  Covid has hit us all hard--those of us making our living as musicians and artists have lost significant income streams. The Arts Council, among its many services, established a Covid-Relief grant in 2020 to help struggling artist. The Council provides free art classes and supplies to youth in need. It's many programs have had to be even more creative to stay afloat. Right now, the Arts Council is spearheading a significant giving campaign to ensure our vital arts community---also an important stream of vitality and income for the island as a whole--not only survives Covid, but continues to thrive. Please give as you are able! View our video below and scroll to find the donate button! Thank you so much for supporting the arts on Whidbey Island!




























In the Quiet of Winter...

A Solstice Celebration

Improvisational musical meditations and original poetry for the dark of the night and the return of the light--with Andre Feriante, guitar & Sheila Weidendorf, piano. To support these musicians, please consider making a tax-deductible donation by clicking the "Donate Today" button at the bottom of the page. Thank you so much for watching, and we hope our music brings you delight, or peace enough to carry you through these days and nights. Blessings to all!
