Mission 15

In 2009, Resonance Ensemble began to build a formidable new force in Portland’s classical music scene: a fiercely talented choir, led by conductor Katherine FitzGibbon, that didn’t just want to sing; they were on a mission. 

Now, 15 years later, Resonance invites Portland audiences to join them in celebration with “Mission 15,” a concert highlighting their journey as “one of the Northwest’s finest choirs” (Willamette Week) – dedicated to championing innovative voices, cultivating community engagement, and deeply considering social impact. This performance features many of the extraordinary artists and partners important to Resonance’s story, sharing indelible new works that showcase the group’s unwavering commitment to mission-driven art. 

It all takes place one night only at the Winningstad Theatre, on Saturday, June 8th, 2024, at 7:30pm. 

Highlights include:

  • Composer-performers Joe Kye, Freddy Vilches, and Cecille Elliott, each joining forces with Resonance in performing their own original works
  • Special guest performances by flutist Adam Eccleston, Las Matices Latin Ensemble, cellist Valdine Mishkin, and more!
  • Additional Resonance-commissioned works by composers Kenji Bunch, Judy A. Rose, Kimberly R. Osberg, Jasmine Barnes, Mari Esabel Valverde, and Damien Geter
  • Surprise appearances from partners from throughout our 15 years
  • The world premiere of a new poem by poet-in-residence S. Renee Mitchell—along with featured texts by poets A. Mimi Sei, Sonya Renee Taylor, James DePreist, Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi, and more!
  • A post-concert celebratory conversation with the composers and conductors
  • An exclusive sneak peek into Resonance’s highly anticipated Season 16!

PRICING: $40 general | $30 seniors | $15 artists/students/veterans (service charges apply)
