May 20 & 21 Concerts: Dream Keepers

Please mark your calendar for our spectacular CCD May concerts entitled Dream Keepers, Friday May 20 at 7:30 pm and Saturday May 21 at 4:00 pm. From a viewpoint of compassion, hope, and courage, with stunning and deeply meaningful music by Ticheli, Rutter, Dilworth, Elder, Bernstein, Lennon, and others, we will focus on the contemporary social issue of homelessness in the broadest sense as it affects our city and country today, including those who are homeless on our streets as well as refugees, who are at times both stateless and homeless.  Our program includes a powerful, moving new work, Street Requiem, commemorating those who struggle anonymously on the streets, and we are honored to collaborate with the Capuchin Soup Kitchen Choir for this work.  An NPR link for background info: One Night Only: The Streets Meet the Opera House. Featured soloists are Freda Herseth and Carlos Enrique Santelli, from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance.

In conjunction with our concerts, our CCD choristers are partnering and doing outreach this spring with local organizations that serve those who are homeless and/or refugees, as well as other community partners (in random order): Detroit Rotary, World Medical Relief, Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, Freedom House, Covenant House, Ruth Ellis Center, Wayne State University and WSU HIGH Program, Capuchin Franciscan Province of St. Joseph, Capuchin Soup Kitchen Choir, and Strategic Staffing Solutions.

Performances include a one-item, silent fundraising auction for a fabulous, trip-of-a-lifetime vacation package for a photo safari at South Africa’s renowned Zulu Nyala game reserve.  For photos and info: http://www.zulunyalagroup.com/Hluhluwe/Safari-Game-Lodge/
