A world-renowned French guitarist, a funky Portland saxophonist and a soulful northwest singer-songwriter walk into a casino... This is no joke but the very real and exciting lineup at the third-annual Smooth in Seattle outdoor summer jazz concert at Clearwater Casino & Resort. Paris-born Marc Antoine, whose guitar work has backed the likes of Sting, Rod Stewart and Cher, headlines the event, filling Clearwater's grassy lawn with his intricate multicultural urban groove. But first, saxophonist Patrick Lamb will play his signature magnetic fusion of R&B and rural southern roadhouse, and sweet-voiced Tacoma, Washington singer Stephanie Anne Johnson will open the show. Easy travel options are available from Seattle, including a free shuttle running from the ferry terminal. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the event Learn More
We often enjoy a light dinner at Fonte Cafe and Wine Bar before shows at Benaroya. Much nicer than the choices in the hall.Seattle Men's Chorus Holiday Concert: Play It Again Santa dining • Jun 17 2014 star this tip starred

Donna Shin, flute
The sounds of South America come alive in this engaging multimedia presentation. Experience music inspired by the countries of the Inca trail together with breathtaking photos of the region and its people.
Works included on the program are the famous Peruvian folk song El condor pasa; Osvaldo Golijov’s Maríel for Cello and Orchestra, performed by cellist David Requiro; Jimmy López’s Fiesta!; and Gabriela Lena Frank’s Illapa, Tone Poem for Flute and Orchestra, performed by Donna Shin.
After years of collecting South American music from private homes, museums and libraries, conductor and Peru native Miguel Harth-Bedoya launched the Caminos del Inka project in order to give this exceptional music new life. “It is an effort,” he says, “to unearth forgotten musical gems, mix them with classical ones, and commission new music from these countries, thereby bringing new repertoire and new sounds to the concert hall.”
Caminos del Inka is the first concert in the 2010–2011 Around the World Series, a new programming initiative designed to explore in depth the music and culture of different regions across the globe.
