Our 2021 September concerts are over. However, we're not quite finished with singing for the 2021/2022 year. Chor Anno has been invited to singing for the 2022 conference of the Northwest Regional Amercian Choral Directors Association. This is in Spokane. Chor Anno sings at the Myrtle Woldson Auditorium on the campus of Gonzaga University on Saturday evening, March 12th, 2022. We are delighted to have been invited to sing for this auspicious audience!
Our September concerts for 2022 are set for September 17th at the Lagerquist Auditorium on the campus of Pacific Lutheran University. Concert time is 7:00 p.m. Our second concert will be Sunday, September 18th, in the Wollenberg Auditorium at Lower Columbia College, Longview. That concert is to be at 2:00 p.m. and is sponsored by the Kelso/Longview Community Concert Association.

PLEASE NOTE: At both venues we are requiring that proof of vaccination against Covid-19 be shown. In other words, please be prepared to show your vaccination card or a photo of the card at the door. All singers have been vaccinated. In addition, all singers and members of the audience will be asked to wear masks. Social distancing will be observed.
Our 2021 program is selected. Our theme is "Resilience." We hope you find, as we do, that it is timely. One important, slightly longer work, we are planning is "A Silence Haunts Me" by Jake Runestad. It's based on lyrics taken from a letter from Ludwig van Beethoven to his brothers as the composer agonizes over his diagnosis of the loss of his hearing. What a powerful, poignant, and moving work!
We're eager to perform the whole "Resilience" program . We think you'll find it uplifting. For sure, every member of the choir is eager to rehearse and sing for you. It's been a l-o-n-g time. We missed you and each other in 2020!
Rather than charging for tickets or suggesting a donation amount this year, we are offering this year's program for any amount you choose to give...or nothing at all, if you wish! Please come and hear us. We love our audiences and hope to see you! But, be safe!
