National touring artists and our region’s premier vocal band, The Coats, will return to Bellingham High School (BHS) with their engaging holiday concert, a popular event for all ages. Known for tightly arranged interactive performances, The Coats’ seamless blend of music and comedy is an audience favorite. BHS Showstoppers, Sehome HS Chamber Choir and Squalicum HS Storm Singers open the concert with short performances. A family-friendly kick-off to the festive season, the Coats Holiday Concert is also a fundraiser for local high school choir programs. Tickets $15 through Nov. 22; $20 after Thanksgiving and at the door. Information: 360-676-5006 or www.thecoats.net
