A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

We cordially invite you to attend our May concerts, entitled Giving Voice to Verse on Friday, 5/10 at 7:30 and Saturday, 5/11 at 4:00, at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson Ave. at Burns in historic Indian Village, Detroit 48214 (secure parking). The 100-voice Community Chorus of Detroit will perform with string orchestra in this richly varied program that crosses centuries and genres. From Biblical references and Shakespearean texts to the voices of the pre-Civil War American South and the city streets of our country today, and from Walt Whitman and Sara Teasdale to Dolly Parton, this program enlivens and ennobles the meaning of language through the power of music, “giving voice to verse.” The repertoire includes Vaughan Williams’ “Serenade to Music,” spirituals, newly composed works by Ola Gjeilo, Eriks Esenvalds, and Craig Hella Johnson, as well as other thought-provoking, inspiring music.

Performances include a special, one-item silent auction for the ultimate gift, a fabulous trip-of-a-lifetime vacation package for two for a photo safari in South Africa’s renowned Zulu Nyala game reserve!

General admission tickets are available online here for $20 here until 5/9 noon or for $25 at the door. Please note that we do not acknowledge orders or mail tickets; your online ticket order will be held at the will-call desk at the concert, under the name of the person ordering the tickets.
