2nd Annual “Social Justice Through Music” Choir Festival dedicated to social justice issues and cultivating a network of like-minded choral singers, music directors, religious leaders, and community members here in Tucson. There are two ways to get involved – as a singer in the festival choir or attend the concert as a supporter of our efforts.
We plan to come together on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church – located near Speedway and Alvernon in central Tucson. Music rehearsals with our festival choir will convene 9:00am-12:00n and 3:30-5:00pm. There will be a catered dinner for participants at 5:00pm. The festival concert begins at 7:00pm, no admission charge.
The festival events will feature the acclaimed choral clinician and conductor Steven Zielke, returning to Tucson to lead rehearsals and workshops on how choral music serves as a vehicle for bringing people together and healing divisions in our communities. Those with a desire to increase social justice in our world and inspire those with the same passion are encouraged to sing in the choir or attend the performance.
If you or your choir members would like to participate in the festival as a singer, please contact us ASAP to reserve your place in the choir by emailing CelticChoir@gmail.com or calling (520) 395-6551. A registration fee of $25 per participant is requested to help cover the festival costs, although no individual will be denied access to the festival for financial reasons and
ALL ARE WELCOME!
I hope to hear from you soon, and please share this invitation with any friends or colleagues that share a similar interest! If you are unable to sing in the festival, please consider attending the concert to hear the fruits of our labors.
Mike Scionti, Music Director at St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church
