Join us for our moving and inspiring December concerts entitled Spiritual Peace & Joy at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson at Burns, in Detroit’s historic Indian Village neighborhood, on Friday, December 13 at 7:30 and Saturday, December 14 at 4:00. Dr. Edward Maki-Schramm will conduct the 85-voice chorus and orchestra, with chorister soloists as well as guest artists from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance. The concerts feature Maurice Draughn’s new work, A Ceremony of Spirituals, in addition to other contemporary works and selections from Handel’s Messiah, for the purpose of interweaving musical genres that convey the universal messages of peace on earth and radiant joy at this darkest time of year. With this innovative musical program, we celebrate the commonality of all people through their shared humanity and reverence.
Performances include a special, one-item silent auction for the ultimate gift, a fabulous trip-of-a-lifetime vacation package for a photo safari in South Africa’s renowned Zulu Nyala game reserve!
Online ticket ordering is now closed, but tickets may be purchased at the door for $25. Previously purchased online tickets will be held at the will-call desk at the concert under the name of the purchaser.
All of us in the Community Chorus of Detroit thank you – our supporters – for all you do to help us to continue “Singing in the Heart of Detroit!”
