Growing up with a folk singing mother in North Carolina, Aurora Barr's passion for music and performing started at a young age. Performing in street fairs and festivals starting as early as age 3. That love and devotion only grew as she got older, developed through her family and various choir directors, allowing Aurora to participate in many vocal groups and professional ensembles all around the Triangle Area.
During her adolescence Aurora's abilities and passion allowed her to participate in countless honors choirs, benefit tours, scholarship ensembles and much more up until the age of 18. Highlights being one of 5 women pick in the country for an internship with the Brightleaf Music Scholars at Duke University in 2002 and being a part of The Haufman Benefit for Breast Cancer in 2003 in Boston, MA.
Aurora went on to study Musical Theater at Shenandoah Conservatory in Virginia, but left after realizing that God had a different plan for her. Aurora met Jesus for the first time at the age of 16 but didn't become a devote follower until she was 20. Realizing that her gifts and abilities were not her own was a challenge for a woman used to being in the spotlight. But God is so patient, gracious and merciful.
Aurora began leading worship at her local church in Cary, NC in 2003 and then Greenville, NC before feeling a call to move to the bay area in 2006. During her fist year living in the bay area Aurora helped lead worship with her brother in a small church in Redwood City and then at ALCF in Mountain View. As well as occasional weekends as MPPC in Menlo Park, even participating in their worship CD compilation in 2012, REBORN. Aurora Barr then lead worship at NBCC in Mountain View CA f0r a few years before moving to Oviedo, Florida in May of 2015. She spent 4 years as Worship Minister at The Foundry Church in Winter Springs but has now moved to Asheville, NC to pursue teaching full time.
In her spare time Aurora loves writing and recording music, going on hikes with her husband and basically anything that has olives in it!
Aurora is grateful to the Lord for bringing a new purpose in to her life and prays that God will use the gifts He has so generously given to give back to others.
