North Coast Chorale concert set


November 30, 2017

The North Coast Chorale’s winter concert will be held Friday, Dec. 8, and Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Performing Arts Center, 588-16th, Astoria. Under the direction of Dr. Denise Reed, the Chorale will fill the Performing Arts Center with songs all relating to “Mysteries of the Stars”: What they are, where they come from and how we use them.

In addition to enchanting the audience with songs such as “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” “Catch a Falling Star” and “Rise Up Shepherds and Follow,” Karin Temple, renowned and published poet, will recite poems about the stars. Original watercolors by Jo Pomeroy-Crockett, featuring nebulae and the mysteries and magic of space, will be displayed in the lobby.

There will also be home-made holiday treats prepared by Emily Honl in an effort to raise money for the eighth-grade year-end trip. It’s people helping people – the audience helps the eighth graders enjoy a trip, and the North Coast Chorale, through its performances, help the Partners for the PAC keep the Performing Arts Center available for the Pacific Northwest to enjoy the arts.

Tickets are $10 at the door with children under 12 free when accompanied by an adult. North Coast Chorale receives support from the Oregon Arts Commission, a state agency funded by the State of Oregon.

To complete the 2017 Season, North Coast Chorale will also be seen in a guest performance with the North Coast Symphonic Band on Dec. 17, and at the Grotto in Portland on Dec. 28. Anyone wishing to join the NCC is welcome; the new season begins on Tuesday, Jan. 9, just contact Denise Reed, 503-338-8403. Upcoming events in 2018 include “The Seven Last Words of Christ” in March, a benefit concert for the community, and the annual spring concert, “Just for the Fun of it” in May. North Coast Chorale also receives support from the Clatsop County Cultural Coalition, a part of the Oregon Cultural Trust.
