(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.

Season ticket holders get preferred seating at the front of the main floor.  Single-event tickets are for seats on the rest of the main floor and in the balcony.

Discounted tickets are as follows and can only be purchased by calling the ticket line, by sending email or at the box-office.  Due to verification requirements, advanced purchase of these tickets cannot be mailed and will be available at the will-call desk the day of the concert:

Seating begins 15 minutes before the 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.

Since 1992, Aurora Chorus has honored the strength and beauty of women's lives through the fine art of choral singing. Aurora was founded on the belief that music can be a powerful instrument of peace--locally, globally, and in the hearts of all who sing and all who listen.

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