Audience members will enjoy popular favorites from musicals and more while basking in the sunshine
and majestic scenery of the farm – including the farm’s gardens, barn, historic farmhouse, farm animals, and more.

Program pieces include Somewhere Over the Rainbow, I Could Have Danced All Night, Summertime
from Porgy and Bess, Nessun Dorma from Puccini’s opera Turandot, and songs from Oklahoma and
The Sound of Music.

Rachel DeShon, Seattle soprano who performed at ASO’s 2018 holiday concert, is back for more. She
joins orchestra musicians Bill Boyd and Karen Sorenson, violins, Mike Watson, viola, and Brian
Wharton, cello.
