After 17 years of leadership, the Northwest Chamber Chorus Music Director Mark Kloepper will conduct his final season. As we reflect on where we've been and prepare for what is to come, NWCC will celebrate all the cycles of life: birth, growth, maturity, and rebirth. These seasons of life arrive, unfold, pass, and return. They bring joy and grief; faith and fear; light and darkness. Join us for a musical celebration of all the PASSAGES of our lives.
The Northwest Chamber Chorus welcomes The Sound of the Northwest conducted by Vanessa Bruce to share the stage this March. Continuing our journey through time, we take stock of where we are currently. What do we cherish, and how do we find strength to keep moving forward? How do we preserve our traditional musical heritage while seeking unity with other cultures?
We will combine our voices for selections by Jester Hairston, Undine Smith Moore, Vanessa Bruce, Raymond Wise, and Cora Jackson. Each choir will also perform their own selections.
We are committed to broadening our reach and deepening our impact throughout our community. As part of this commitment, this concert will use entirely Pay What You Can tickets. $25 is the suggested ticket price, but we trust that our audience will pay an amount that matches their ability to pay.
