June 3, 2021
North Coast Chorale has been bringing quality concerts to the Pacific Northwest for over 30 years, and preparations are under way for their “Belated 30th Anniversary” celebration. On Friday, June 11, Saturday, June 12, and Sunday June 13, NCC will perform many of their favorites sung over the past 30 years. The list includes a variety of music genres including some jazz, a little gospel, a touch of rock ‘n’ roll, and a few sacred pieces. To further entertain the audience, local favorites, Deac Guidi and Dinah Urell will collaborate their vocal talents with the Chorale.
Deac Guidi, known for his rich bass voice, dramatic talent, and humor, has sung with opera companies in Eugene, Tacoma, Portland, the Astoria Chamber Opera, and Astoria Music Festival. Deac will sing solos and in ensemble with Chorale singers.
Dinah Urell, the editor and producer of HipFish Monthly, is a classically trained and versatile singer and composer of music. Ms. Urell is a spellbinding singer and improviser of blues/jazz music. Dinah will also join with the NCC singers.
