There will be a choral performance of Noh Garden September 11, 2011, at St. Stephen's Episcopal Parish, SW Clay and 13th, Portland, Oregon. The singers and chorus (augmented with other members of the St. Stephen's choir) will be presenting just the words and music of the work, under the direction of Matthew Smith, in memory of those who died on September 11, 2011. The performance is part of the Sunday worship, which begins at 10 AM. It will run about 25 minutes, replacing the sermon and a choir anthem. This rehearsal clip of Andy McQuery, who sings the role of Jesus, and Erin Walker, who plays Mary Magdalene, hints at the beauty of this music. There is no admission fee.
