Astoria choir sings "Macabre"

Astoria’s 40+ voice North Coast Chorale will sing its first-ever concert in Wahkiakum County, Sunday, June 9th at 4:00 pm. The concert will be given at the Little Island Creamery, 448 E. Little Island Road, Puget Island (Cathlamet).

The Chorale performance will feature “Macabre” choral music from legendary Broadway musicals “Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street”, “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Phantom of the Opera”.

The Chorale has for more than 30 years performed major choral works not only in Astoria but throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond (including Barcelona, Spain). The NCC has performed or collaborated with many area groups, including the Cascadia Chamber Opera, the North Coast Symphonic Band, the North Coast Symphony and others.

Currently directed by Dr. Vincent Jones-Centeno, the NCC is one of the best-known community chorales in the lower Columbia region. Singing with the NCC June 9th will be several Wahkiakum County residents, along with veteran NCC choristers and a few surprises (look for Audrey2 the man-eating plant from Little Shop of Horrors)!

This unique concert experience will be a first for both the Chorale and the Little Island Creamery. Admission is $15 through or at the door.
