The Blue Hour in Concert

Join composer/vocalist Shara Nova and musicians of the Oregon Symphony as they explore memories of childhood, war, love, and loss in an intimate and personal concert. Described as "a gorgeous and remarkably unified work" (The Washington Post) The Blue Hour amplifies the beauty, pain, and fragility of human life from a collective female perspective. 

Written collaboratively by composers Rachel Grimes, Angélica Negrón, Shara Nova, Caroline Shaw, and Sarah Kirkland Snider, The Blue Hour is a song cycle set to excerpts from Carolyn Forché’s epic poem On Earth and follows one woman’s journey through the space between life and death via thousands of hallucinatory and non-linear images.
