This North Coast Weekend

"The Babes - Humboldt Light Opera Company's Women's Chorus - celebrate their 20th Anniversary at the Eureka Woman's Club (1531 J Street, Eureka) on Saturday, November 8 at 7 p.m., with a concert followed by reception. Admission to this event is free, but donations are sincerely appreciated.

The Women's Chorus first performed in 1994, with the motto "We've come a long way, but don't call us Baby!" The ensemble came to be known as The Babes, in an offbeat response to the original advertisement. Founding (and current) director Carol Ryder had envisioned an all-female vocal group that would sing across genres, from classical to classic rock. Their repertoire has grown to include a cappella and jazz selections, and new works with unexpected rhythms and challenging harmonies.

 Read more about the concert at or by calling 822-1318."
