Songs of Faith and Freedom
Saturday, October 22, 7:00 pm
Hillsdale United Church of Christ
Choirs from churches and synagogues all over the Portland metro area will raise their voices together in an interfaith celebration of the power of the human voice to make a difference in the world. This evening of shared music and fellowship is a fundraiser for the ongoing work of the Community of Welcoming Congregations. Participating churches include Hillsdale United Church of Christ, Lake Oswego Church of Christ, Meridian United Church of Christ, West Hills Friends Church, Unitarian Universalist Church of Vancouver, P’nai Or, Congregation Neveh Shalom, and more.
Each choir will present a short set of pieces, and the massed choirs will sing two anthems, including Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Antiphon” from Five Mystical Songs and “We Are One” by Vancouver BC composer Brian Tate. Susan Peck, music director for the Lake Oswego United Church of Christ, is the artistic director for the event, hosted by Tim Ditch, music director at Hillsdale United Church of Christ.
