Tchaikovsky’s Divine Liturgy: UPDATES (Safety and Live-Streaming)

Tchaikovsky: All-Night Vigil
Live concert feed


The Saturday night performance of Tchaikovsky’s Divine Liturgy will take place as planned at 7:30 p.m., as a live-streamed performance without an in-person audience.

To ensure that you don’t miss this experience, the concert will be streamed on Facebook Live for you to enjoy—safely—at home. We will also make available a PDF of the program book so that you can follow along.

The link to the video stream will be on our website.

The 16 professional adult singers of Cappella Romana will perform the program Saturday before you—a virtual audience!

However, Pacific Youth Choir has opted not to take part in the concert. Their decision was made in alignment with Governor Kate Brown’s order banning gatherings of 250 or more, and with Portland Public Schools proactively suspending events that bring large groups of students, adults, and community members together.

If you are a ticket holder, we ask kindly that you consider donating your tickets back to Cappella Romana; you will be issued a receipt for your tax-deductible gift.

As you can imagine, any loss of ticket revenue has significant financial impact on us.

You may also exchange your ticket for our May concert—the world premiere of Robert Kyr’s All-Night Vigil.

For assistance, do contact our new Operations & Communications Manager, Julia Sheridan, **, or at 503-236-8202.

We are so thankful for your continued support of excellent choral singing in our community, with Cappella Romana, Pacific Youth Choir, and so many other choirs in our region.

We are here and happy to help you. Stay safe.

Yours sincerely,


Mark Powell
Executive Director, Cappella Romana
