The final concert of our 43rd season previews the cross-cultural program ORS will take on tour to Spain in summer 2017. The singers share some of the greatest American choral music, both old and new: from traditional and inspirational spirituals, to Morten Lauridsen’s Madrigali, a set of six “fire songs” by the Pacific Northwest native and 2007 National Medal of Arts recipient. ORS also honors the music and culture of our tour destination, singing some of the greatest Spanish choral music from the Renaissance to the present. Performances in Portland will be followed by a tour to Barcelona in July.
Oregon Repertory Singers’ Barcelona Tour Farewell Concert
Join the Oregon Repertory Singers’ tour group for a farewell concert! Hear ORS one last time before we travel to Barcelona, Spain to share some of the greatest American and Spanish choral music. Forty singers will encore our “Love and Fire” program including Morten Lauridsen’s Madrigali, which will be featured on ORS’ new album to be released in 2018!
We hope you’ll join us to enjoy and support ORS before we say adiós in July!
