A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

The Hope of Loving Concerts Friday, May 18 at 7:30 and Saturday, May 19 at 2:00

Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson Ave. in Detroit’s historic Indian Village neighborhood.

Our concert theme invites reflection on the range of human emotion, from despair to “the hope of loving” – finding hope and meaning in our lives through the beauty of nature, music, faith, and, most of all, the many ways we love – and are loved by – others. Composers of our spring repertoire include Jake Runestad, Kim André Arnesen, and Craig Hella Johnson, among many greats, with a world premiere of Daniel Elder’s “Shadows Will Fall,” commissioned for the Community Chorus of Detroit. The music is among the most beautiful, meaningful, moving, and powerful of our time, making for an extraordinary, inspiring concert program.

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

The Community Chorus of Detroit presents these concerts in partnership with Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan.  Each ticket sold provides six meals for our hungry neighbors.
