Radiance is committed to collaborating with other local arts groups to showcase their works and enrich the concert experience. By engaging multiple artistic disciplines, we can push the boundaries of artistic expression to create something bigger than the sum of its parts. For this year's collaboration, Radiance is proud to present three guest artists: Sorella from the Seattle Girls Choir, contemporary a cappella ensemble Outpour, and the Guild Dance Company. Each guest artist will present a 20-minute set, and will combine forces for a performance of POMPEII by Bastille. More information.
Outpour is a contemporary a cappella ensemble of eight voices from all around the greater Seattle area. They aim to emphasize self-expression, interconnectedness, and collaboration with audiences and other musicians in the PNW. Their set is a diverse collection of pop, r&b, jazz, and nostalgia, all arranged by members of the group.

THE GUILD DANCE
Founded in 2018, the Guild Dance was created as a place for artists to collaborate, create, and share works, experiences, and stories together with each other and audiences. Artistic Director Alex Ung used his varied dance and performance backgrounds and fused them together to compose works that reflected personal stories such as his family’s forced migration from their homeland and immigration to the United States during war. As Alex brings his stories and experience to the company, the company members and collaborators also bring a beautiful spectrum of themselves. Their works strive to celebrate each individual with what and who they are showcased by the various styles of dance and expression from contemporary, ballet, musical theater, modern, and hip hop. Continually working to collaborate with other artists, the Guild builds community, love, and understanding.
