Virtual Sing-A-Long: "(Staying) Home for the Holidays"
We might be staying home for the holidays this year, but that doesn't mean they can't be merry and bright. Grab some hot cocoa, cozy up by the fire, and join us for a virtual holiday sing-along of some classic Christmas songs, a few seasonal musical theater numbers, some chill winter vibes, and more. The evening will be led by PCS partnering artist, Amir Shirazi, and you'll stay muted during the singing portion, so you can sing your heart out or simply listen to some wintery tunes.
Amir is an active composer, arranger, sound designer, music director, and songwriter. Their theatrical credits include productions with Portland Actors Ensemble (for which they won the Outdoor Shakespeare Festival Award in 2012 for Best Sound Design of Twelfth Night), Post5 Theatre Company, Milagro Theatre (for which they won a Drammy Award in 2015 for Outstanding Achievement in Original Music for ¡O Romeo!), Jewish Theatre Collaborative, Corrib Theatre, and most recently, Portland Center Stage at The Armory (Macbeth and Hedwig and the Angry Inch).
