“Voices of Hope” – A Choral Concert for International Holocaust Remembrance Day – Jan. 30th, 4pm

by marian on January 25, 2011

Hope has a voice

and a song … listen …

To the voice of Courage – “We must cast out fear and face the unknown with courage and integrity and a high heart.”

To the voice of Compassion – “…bring me home to gladness, restore my hope again.”

To the voice of Healing – “Every heart is in you, every tongue, every trembling in you; every blessing, every soul, every shining, woven into fire.”

To the voice of Home – “After wind, after rain, when the dark is done… there’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.”

To the voice of Hope – “I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining … I believe through any trial, there is always a way.”

Come join your voice with ours: The Choir Project’s women’s vocal ensemble Lumina, survivors, liberators, partizans, community faith leaders, educators, students, poets, and composers.
