An Evening of Sacred Song

 

continued

The wide range of music is woven together to allow each member to show off his or her particular strength. The concert moves skillfully between the lighthearted and the soulful, the celebratory and the pensive. The lyrics of each song reveal much about the character of this chorus. The final song is an amazing funk number--the entire ensemble alive and dancing and joined by all former members--that takes down the house.

Perhaps most distinctive is that every year the proceeds of this concert are donated to a different local nonprofit organization that affirms the values of social justice and spiritual inclusiveness. Past beneficiaries have included the Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights and the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan.

At the end of the concert is a small reception with appetizers and desserts where audience members have a chance to socialize and meet the singers before taking that good energy back out into the snow.
