A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

                                                                                                                                                                                                 —We cordially invite you to attend our December performances, entitled Gloria: A Concert for Peace on Friday, 12/7 at 7:30 and Saturday, 12/8 at 4:00, at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson Ave. at Burns in historic Indian Village, Detroit 48214 (secure parking). The concerts feature Vivaldi’s Gloria punctuated with text-related African-American spirituals, for the purpose of illuminating each of these contemporaneous musical genres, as they are woven together from across the Atlantic, but even more so from across oceans of culturally, socio-economically, and geographically diverse life experiences, while conveying the same message. Additional music is thematically related to these genres, further enhancing the message of peace. 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 door under the name of the purchaser.

We hope you will join us for our third international tour, to southern Spain and Portugal, for 11 days in early October, 2019, including Madrid, Seville, Granada, and Lisbon, as well as other stops in the picturesque countryside of the Iberian Peninsula. Please click here for the flyer.  Along with concerts at magnificent cathedrals and other world-renowned venues, we’ll enjoy visits to museums, palaces, and historic sites, as well as a Portuguese cooking class, a flamenco performance, a tapas adventure, and much more.  The tour is open to CCD choristers and companions, non-CCD singers, and non-singing friends. Registration is open now via the flyer, above, or via CCD Touring Choir on our site.  Our tour enrollment is currently nearly full – a year out – so please register ASAP, as section enrollment will be limited for balance.

Please contact us with questions: info@communitychorusofdetroit.com.

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!”
