Portland Opera Chorus featured on NPR this Friday

Julia Sheridan, publicity and publications manager at Portland Opera has informed me that NPR's Morning Edition will broadcast a 7-minute story on the Portland Opera Chorus this Friday, May 9. She thinks that it will run at about 7:50 but doesn't have a confirmed time yet.

In Sheridan's words: "It's a story about life in the chorus--and the Portland Opera chorus in particular. The story includes interviews with a couple of the chorus members as they go about their day jobs and great clips from the chorus rehearsals for Aida (led by chorus master Rob Ainsley, and later by conductor Vjekoslav Sutej) including a rousing finish of the 68-member chorus on stage with the Portland Opera Orchestra. It's a huge and wonderful sound."
