Hudson Hall,
Mary Stuart Rogers Music Center    
 


A long-running tradition, seen by many as the official beginning to the holiday season in Salem. Join us in the beautifully-decorated Hudson Hall, an opportunity to slow down and enjoy a moment of peace and beauty amidst the fast pace of the holiday season.

This year's program will feature timeless choral works and songs for the season performed by Willamette's Voce and  Chamber choirs, along with traditional carols sung together with the audience. 

This Salem holiday tradition typically sells out, so be sure to get your tickets early!

Tickets:  $10 for general admission. Free student admission.

Presented by the Opera Theatre Ensemble
Hudson Hall, Mary Stuart Rogers Music Center

A new opera theatre work about the immigrant experience in the U.S. This one-act opera blends Chinese folk tunes and Chinese opera traditions with western operatic tradition to provide a compelling exploration of a timely topic-the complexity of social dynamics inherent in notions of resilience, race, solidarity, immigration, and settlement challenges.

Pre-concert talks precede each performance: Feb 4 at 6:30 pm, and Feb. 5 at 1:00 pm.

One-Log Bridge is commissioned by Willamette's University Chamber Orchestra & University Concert Band.
