The Central Coast Chorale is excited to share details of our 19th season of performing chorale music on the Central Coast. We will continue our collaboration with the Newport Symphony orchestra presenting Handel’s Messiah at the Performing Arts Center in Newport on December 3rd and 4th. This concert with also feature the Willamette Master Chorus. The combined choir of eighty voices will perform ten of the oratorio’s choruses most closely associated with the Christmas season and soloists from the Master Chorus will perform selected arias.
The following weekend the Chorale will perform our annual “Wishes and Candles” holiday concert on December 11th at Newport First Presbyterian Church. This year’s concert will include Vivaldi’s famous Gloria in D Major, Franz Biebl’s gorgeous setting of Ave Maria Angelus Domini and a selection of holiday choral favorites. The Chorale’s small group, Women of Note, will also perform at the “Wishes and Candles” concert.
The Chorale will begin rehearsals for this season on Saturday, August 27. Singers who are interested in joining us for the fall season are invited to audition on Wednesday, August 24th from 4 to 6 pm at the Newport campus of the Oregon Coast Community College.
