Dance and music combine in “Wayward Sisters,” a collaboration between Pacific MusicWorks and Seattle Dance Project (SDP).

The show, highlighting female vocal-trio traditions through the ages, matches sopranos Shannon Mercer, Teresa Wakim, Catherine Webster and Erin Calata with SDP dancers Betsy Cooper, Alexandra Dickson and Ellie Sandstrom in performances of works by 17th-century composers Luigi Rossi and Domenico Mazzochi. Seattle composer Karen P. Thomas (director of Seattle Pro Musica) adds a more contemporary touch with “A Dialogue between the Soul and Body,” set to a poem by Andrew Marvell.

Anna Mansbridge serves as choreographer while Stephen Stubbs acts as musical director.

8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute, 107 17th Ave. S., Seattle; $20-$40 (800-838-3006 or
