Parkrose High choirs will debut two original pieces created exclusively for them by composer Chris Lawry at its annual spring concert Monday, April 7 at 7 p.m. in the Parkrose High Theater, 12003 N.E. Shaver St.
Choir director Lesley Bossert used funds from a Parkrose Educational Foundation Innovation Grant to commission two works by the British freelance composer.
Lawry was tasked with creating something fun, quirky and rhythmical.
The first piece, “Welcome to Choir” is described by Lawry as fun, energetic and lively.
The second piece, “On the Breath of the Wind,” will test the choir’s ability to work together, according to the composer.
