NCC seeks singers of all ages
September 12, 2019
Although North Coast Chorale (NCC) officially began its new season September 10 at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) on the corner of 16th and Franklin St., it’s not too late to join. Weekly rehearsals run from 6:45 p.m. until 9 p.m. every Tuesday evening. The Chorale and Director, Dr. Denise Reed, are looking for singers in all four parts with all levels of talent, including students with strong voices in grades 7-12, senior citizens and those in between. Clatsop Community College students can earn credits when they sign up for Group Voice/NCC. No auditions required; anyone interested is encouraged to take part. For more information, contact Director, Denise Reed, 503-338-8403 or NCC President, Frank Spence, 503-325-2365.
On September 28 and 29, the Chorale will participate in the Cascadia Chamber Opera’s production of the “H.M.S. Pinafore” at the PAC. This is a comic opera in two-acts by Gilbert and Sullivan and is sure to entertain the audience.
Continuing the course of operatic storytelling at the PAC, on Friday, Dec. 13, Friday, Dec. 20 and Sunday, Dec. 22, North Coast Chorale will present Menotti’s “Amahl and the Night Visitors.” Portrayed in a slightly different setting, this is a story of a young, disabled boy, living in poverty with his widowed mother and their encounter with three strangers. It is a tale to warm the heart.
The Chorale will soon be celebrating its 30th Anniversary. With the theme, “30 for 30!”, NCC will present 30 of their greatest selections over the last 30-years.
