They include Christina Kowalski and Kresha Frankhauser, sopranos; Michael Sommese, tenor; and Steve Mortier and William Rhodes, baritones. David Demand will provide piano accompaniment.

The two-hour cruise loads at 6 p.m. at the Coeur d’Alene Resort and departs at 6:30. Admission is $30 for reserved table seating, $26 for general seating; a dining option, A Taste of Titos, is available for an additional $15.
