WE HAVE CANCELED THIS CONCERT

We will return when the world is safe from this terrible virus! STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY OUT THERE, dear community! Please check back with us to find out when we will be able to give this concert!

The Chorus is thrilled to present two performances of an original piece by former Chorus director and Bay Area composer, John Maas! It is a beautiful setting for Chorus, Piano, and Narrator of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s stirring "I Have A Dream" speech from the 1963 March for Jobs and Freedom in Washington DC.

We are very happy that we will be joined by Vukani Mawethu, the Bay Area’s well-known and beloved South African Chorus and also by Benjamin Mertz, the founder and director of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church's Joyful Noise! Gospel Singers in Sebastopol, who will be delivering Dr. King's unforgettable and inspiring words. It is a unique presentation you will not want to miss! 

To round out the concert, each chorus will share songs from their own repertoires.
