Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble performs "All Northwest"
"Opus 7, one of the most esteemed musical groups anywhere" - Richard Campbell, The Gathering Note

Every two years, Opus 7 presents what is one of our favorite events of the season: a concert of works composed exclusively by some of the finest choral composers in the Northwest.

This year's "All Northwest" concert event features works by Morten Lauridsen, Donald Skirvin, Sean MacLean, Gerald Kechley, Joan Szymko, David White, Lorri Kristin Froggét, Reginald Unterseher, Bern Herbolsheimer, John David Earnest, Evan Ingalls, and Opus 7's Composer-in-Residence John Muehleisen.

Joining Opus 7 for this spectacular collection of choral music are instrumentalists Christina Siemens, piano; Cherilyn Reimers, violin; and David Lepse, organ.

Prior to the concert at 7:25 p.m., Opus 7's composer-in-residence John Muehleisen moderates a panel of the evening's composers discussing their own works.

Reserved seating is available by advance donation. Suggested donation is $18.00 in advance, $20 at the door for adults; students and seniors pay as able.
