2019 Concerts by the Bay schedule released

Kitsap Opera appearance July 25 is a highlight of summer series

PORT ORCHARD — Plenty of old favorites — and some new acts — will grace the gazebo stage at Port of Bremerton Marina Park this summer as part of the 2019 slate of performers for the summertime’s Concerts by the Bay.

The Fathoms O’ Fun Festival event is a weekly affair on Thursdays, beginning May 30 through Sept. 5. There will be a couple of exceptions to the Thursday evening performances (see the schedule below). The concerts will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday unless indicated otherwise below.

A highlight for the 2019 season, said Sharron King, Fathoms O’ Fun’s director, will be an appearance Thursday, July 25, by Kitsap Opera, which offers musical and theatrical performances. It will be their first appearance at Concerts by the Bay, she noted.

“The group will perform selections from Mozart’s ‘Don Giovanni,’” King said, which many have called the finest opera ever composed.

Favorites from past seasons, including Danny Vernon’s “Illusion of Elvis” and Sinatra crooner Joey Jewell, will appear again this year.
