North Coast Chorale concert set for June 2


“Journey in Peace” will be presented by North Coast Chorale at the Performing Arts Center, corner of 16th and Franklin Streets, Astoria, on Friday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. Although donations are always welcome, admission is free as this performance is a benefit

Typically, June would bring time to relax for North Coast Chorale, but not this year. The Chorale is enthusiastic and ready to present another beautiful selection of works, which is actually a preview of the concert to be performed at the 11th World Symposium of Choral Music in Barcelona, Spain.

“The Colours of Peace” was chosen for the theme of this year’s World Symposium. For this reason, the Chorale has prepared a collection of peace-related compositions and entitled the Benefit Concert “Journey in Peace.” Many of the selections being presented by the Chorale will be somewhat familiar such as, Umoja from the Nguzo Saba Suite, Better is Peace - from “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace,” Dona Nobis Pacem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Till The Wind Gets Right by local composer Barbara Poulshock.

The “Journey in Peace” concert is dedicated to Ann Goldeen, a long-time member of North Coast Chorale. It was her wish that a concert should be performed to benefit the NCC. For this reason, all proceeds from the concert will assist in financing the Chorale’s trip to Barcelona.

North Coast Chorale receives support from the Oregon Arts Commission, a state agency funded by the State of Oregon.
