Performing Arts Center
This year, North Coast Chorale’s winter concert will be presented three times: Friday, December 13th at 7 p.m., Friday December 20th at 7 p.m. and again on Sunday the 22nd.at 4 p.m. As usual, all performances will be held at the Performing Arts Center, 588 16th St. and tickets are still only $10 each with children under 12 admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
Part of the concert will feature the Chorale performing several Holiday Favorites, followed by a staged performance of “Amahl and the Night Visitors”. 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 will provide receptacles in the lobby of the PAC and will invite the audience to share this opportunity to donate money, new socks, scarves, or gloves to warm others with hope. All donations will be given to the Astoria Warming Center, whose mission is to warm unsheltered people in our community.
North Coast Chorale receives support from the Oregon Arts Commission, a state agency funded by the State of Oregon. NCC is also sponsored by Lum’s Auto.
