Aurora Chorus: THE RISING OF THE WOMEN IS THE RISING OF US ALL
First Congregational Church
Portland, OR
Share this event:


On March 8, Aurora Chorus presents its first annual International Women's Day event, featuring guest artist Anne Weiss. Former Aurorans will join current singers for a short concert program of beloved repertoire that celebrates women, especially women working for peace and justice.

Worldwide, the empowerment of women benefits children, families, and entire communities. When women rise, communities thrive. Aurora sings choral settings of voices from the past, women such as Abigail Adams, Virginia Woolf, and the South African women who first challenged apartheid. We look to the future as we sing the words of Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani girl who has taken a lead role in fighting for the right of every girl to receive an education; Aurora will give the world premiere performance of "I Am Malala," by our director and nationally renowned choral composer, Joan Szymko.

Our guest artist, Portland singer/songwriter Anne Weiss, is known for her enormous bluesy voice, great guitar chops, and striking stage presence. Her music combines contemporary folk, blues, acoustic funk, gospel music, and smatterings of classical phrasing and Latin rhythms.

There will be one performance at 7:30 p.m. Seating begins 15 minutes before the concert start time. All tickets are for open (non-reserved) seats. We happily accommodate patrons who arrive early and request assistance due to mobility challenges.
