Little Match Girl Passion

Pro Coro's annual winter performance of David Lang's Pulitzer Prize-winning work "The Little Match Girl Passion"

The performance will start at 7pm MST, with an introduction to the work by Artistic Director Michael Zaugg beginning at 6:45pm.

Pro Coro Canada has received an exemption from our local health authorities and will be proceeding with this performance following the current COVID-19 protocols. As such, our concert will be divided into three sections allowing for 5 minute breaks in between performances. During the breaks, please enjoy watching local visual artist and Pro Coro singer Jane Berry as she paints an original work of art based on the performance of The Little Match Girl.
