Orca Sing 2016, June 25 at Lime Kiln Point State Park, 7 p.m.

Orca Sing is an annu­al event where peo­ple gath­er for an evening of music at Lime Kiln Point State Park to hon­or the South­ern Res­i­dent orcas. This year’s event is the 17th annu­al and will take place on Sat­ur­day, June 25, begin­ning at 7 p.m.

This year, Seattle’s City Cantabile Choir will per­form. We will also cel­e­brate Wash­ing­ton State Parks and Orca Aware­ness Month. While there is no guar­an­tee, we hope that the orcas will grace us with a pass-by. The event is free and open to the public.

Par­tic­i­pants are encour­aged to bring a pic­nic to enjoy the beau­ty of Lime Kiln.  Tours of the his­toric light­house will be offered before and after the con­cert. A Dis­cov­ery Pass is required for park­ing at the State Park and can be pur­chased through the Lime Kiln Point State Park Inter­pre­tive Cen­ter. Car­pool­ing is encour­aged as park­ing is lim­it­ed. Round-trip trans­porta­tion is also avail­able through San Juan Tran­sit for $10 a per­son (pick up is at 5:30 at The Whale Muse­um with an 8:30 depar­ture from Lime Kiln).

This year’s event part­ners include Lime Kiln Point State Park, F.O.L.K.S. (Friends of Lime Kiln Soci­ety), City Cantabile Choir, Friends of the San Juans, Orca Net­work, Vashon Hydrophone Project, and The Whale Museum.

For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact The Whale Muse­um at 360–378-4710 ext. 30 or Friends of the San Juans at 360–378-2319.
