The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

NCC winter concert set for December


December 5, 2019

This year, North Coast Chorale’s winter concert will be presented three times: Friday, December 13 at 7 p.m., Friday December 20 at 7 p.m. and again on Sunday December 22 at 4 p.m. As usual, all performances will be held at the Performing Arts Center, 588 16th St., Astoria and tickets are still only $10 each with children under 12 admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

The concert will begin with the chorale performing several holiday favorites, followed by a staged performance of “Amahl and the Night Visitors.” Well-known local artists, Ann Bronson, playing Amahl’s Mother, Deac Guidi, Phil Keim and Tony Kischner portraying the three Kings will share the stage with Soleil Maya Rathmell-Stokes, as Amahl. This one-act opera by Gian-Carlo Menotti was first performed on television by the NBC Opera Theatre in December 1951. It is a retelling of the tale of the Magi from the point of view of a young disabled boy who lives in poverty with his widowed mother.

“Amahl and the Night Visitors” is a story of hope that warms the heart; in response, the chorale is providing receptacles in the lobby of the PAC and is inviting the audience to share this opportunity to donate money, new socks, scarves, or gloves in an effort to warm others and share their hope. All donations will be given to the Astoria Warming Center, whose mission is to warm unsheltered people in the community.
