(Please note: The originally scheduled May 20th concert was cancelled but still appears as a closed event in the ticket-purchase menu.)|
Our 25th Anniversary concert season soars to a close with two world premieres! Renowned composers Carol Barnett and Joan Szymko have created works that honor and celebrate the circle of love and life that is our Aurora Chorus community.
Aurora commissioned renowned composer Carol Barnett to set poetry by Wendell Berry. The Larger Circle is an excerpt from Berrys Healing. Joan Szymko adds to the legacy of music she has lovingly composed for Aurora Chorus by returning to the poetry of Alla Bozarth. Belonging (aka Stars in Your Bones) will feature string quartet accompaniment. Aurora looks back to our rich past and balances these exciting new works with some of the most compelling music and words from our 25 years of being a place where you belong a choral community where women find their voice And a place where joy and grief and tears of hope all flow together in the concert hall.

Directed by renowned choral composer Joan Szymko, Aurora Chorus is comprised of 100 singers from the Portland/Vancouver metro area.
