Aurora Chorus sings of simple gifts and everyday graces, with songs of humble gratitude and joyful praise. Join us for the mystical sounds of Rachmaninov's All Night Vigil and the earthy energy of traditional sacred Shaker music; music by Baroque master Vivaldi and Broadway legend Irving Berlin; and the contemporary choral sounds of American composers Aaron Copland and David Conte. |
Aurora will also premiere two original works and two arrangements by our director, nationally recognized composer Joan Szymko. With the Madrona Viola Duo as our special guests and accompanist Signe Lusk, SIMPLE GIFTS overflows with choral gems and the joy of the holiday season.
All tickets are for open (non-reserved) seats. Premium tickets (available only at this site) give you access to the seats at the front of the main floor. General admission tickets are for seats on the rest of the main floor and in the balcony.
Seating begins 20 minutes before each performance. Come down to the friendship hall beforehand to stay warm and dry. We happily accommodate patrons who arrive early and request assistance due to mobility challenges. Note that the balcony is accessible only by stairs.
We will again have mini pies available to enjoy in the friendship hall, before or after the concert, or we can bag them for you to take home. No food can be consumed in the concert hall. Last year, the pies sold out quickly!
Arts for All tickets are available for patrons with SNAP cards. For more information, call 503-287-6721. Limit 2 tickets per card.
