ISing Choir, Big Horn Brass Ensemble and the Hillsboro School District’s Mariachi Una Voz will present concerts featuring music from film scores from blockbusters such as Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Da Vinci Code and Avatar. Big Horn Brass will open the concert with one of the most recognizable superhero themes of all time “The Superman March.” One of Music Education Assistance Project’s scholarship recipients, Nelson Galicia, will play the oboe solo on “Vita Nostra – Gabriel’s Oboe” from the motion picture The Mission. Hillsboro School District Mariachi Band will join ISing Choir and Big Horn Brass in heart-rending and passionate “Remember Me” from the animated Pixar film, Coco.
ISing’s mission is to share innovative and exceptional choral music while supporting local non-profit organizations and has raised $353,737 for great causes. ISing performs the finest that choral music has to offer and increases public awareness of non-profits that are making a positive impact in our community.
Big Horn Brass was founded in 1983 by Andrew Harris. The performers are thirteen brass players and two percussionists, the finest you will hear anywhere. They combine their diverse musical skills and love of music with exacting perfection from each element in their repertoire. The mission of Big Horn Brass is to enrich the quality of life in Oregon by providing high quality music performances to community audiences, providing new brass repertoire through original compositions and arrangements, and fostering music education in schools and concert halls.
Mariachi Una Voz launched in 2010 with support from the Hillsboro School District Office of Equity. Featuring strings, brass, and singing, the band is free and open to all Hillsboro middle- and high- school students. Since its inception, the group has been a beloved addition to over one hundred school and community events, performing in venues as diverse as the Portland’5 Centers for the Arts theaters, the Moda Center, major regional cultural festivals, schools, libraries and hospitals. The group’s mission is to promote cultural understanding and community unity through music education and performance.

Portland. Admission is free. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance. Please plan on arriving early as seating is limited.
