Gather in Gratitude
Sunday, November 20, 3 pm
Grace United Methodist Church
300 E. Gartner Road, Naperville
This performance, suitable for all ages, will include 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 will sing 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 will accompany 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, will also conduct the choir on one work.
All net proceeds will benefit this concert’s designated local charitable organization, Feed My Starving Children.
