Bolstered by courage, yes, still I rise–Rosephanye Powell
Aurora Chorus celebrates its third annual International Women’s Day concert by honoring the courage and fortitude of women persevering in both everyday and extraordinary circumstances; from making ends meet day to day as a single mother to overcoming the trauma of sexual violence.
Aurora is pleased to welcome back Artistic Director Joan Szymko in a performance that will feature the music of NW singer songwriters, the NW premiere of “Truth” by Andrea Ramsey and a powerful anthem by Lady Gaga.
This year our featured guest artist is Portland indie-folk artist and American Idol alum, Moorea Masa. We are excited to introduce Moorea’s gorgeous fusion of folk & soul to our audience.
Since 1992, Aurora Chorus has honored the strength and beauty of women’s lives through the fine art of choral singing. Aurora was founded on the belief that music can be a powerful instrument of peace—locally, globally, and in the hearts of all who sing and all who listen.
