Tickets are now available for AURA’s spring concert to be presented Saturday March 25th at 7:30pm and Sunday March 26 at 2:00pm in All Saints Anglican Church, Vernon.

The second half will include a selection of spirituals from Michael Tippett’s A Child of our Time, and two selections from Aaron Copland’s The Tender LandStomp Your Foot and our title piece, The Promise of Living.
