Fine Arts Chorale will celebrate the spiritual qualities that make life meaningful—love, gratitude, service and freedom. This concert features settings of texts from authors and leaders who have inspired others to seek justice and compassion for all. Selections include Berger’s Hope for Tomorrow based on the text from a 1956 Martin Luther King, Jr. speech, Bartholew’s A Girl Born in Afghanistan based upon the text of a Kofi Annan speech in the Nobel lecture of 2001, and the premiere of Geoff Wilcken’s That Promised Land, a work based in part upon selected quotes of Nelson Mandela.
Free and open to the public. A free will offering will be taken. Reception to follow.
