ASTORIA — The North Coast Chorale’s winter concert, under the direction of Denise Reed, will be held 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10. The Chorale will fill the Performing Arts Center (588 16th St.) 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, a renown 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.
Attendees can also enjoy homemade holiday treats prepared by Emily Honl in an effort to raise money for Astoria Middle School’s eight-grade year-end trip.
Tickets are $10 at the door. Children under 12 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
To wrap up the 2017 season, the Chorale will also deliver a guest performance with the North Coast Symphonic Band on Sunday, Dec. 17, and at the Grotto in Portland on Thursday, Dec. 28.
Anyone wishing to join the North Coast Chorale is welcome. The new season begins Tuesday, Jan. 9. Contact Reed at 503-338-8403.
