Inaugural 2022 Concert 

Gather in Gratitude

Sunday, November 20, 3:00 pm

Grace United Methodist Church

300 E. Gartner Road, Naperville

This nearly sold-out performance included a variety of choral music selected with the theme of “gratitude”: for home, for love, for the gift of song, for moments in time. The thirty-five auditioned members of NaperVoice sang music from genres including classical, gospel, musical theater, and vocal jazz, by Brahms, Whitacre, Rutter, Runestad, Powell, and other significant composers. A professional percussionist, an award-winning pianist, and a gifted high school violinist accompanied the choir, with kids in the audience invited to learn and play a typical Cuban rhythm on small instruments for one selection. Our talented College/University Student Conductor Intern, Nazarii Mykhailenko, also conducted the choir on one work.

All net proceeds benefited this concert’s designated local charitable organization, Feed My Starving Children.
