A Celebration of Music and Art

“Before there was light, there was water.
Alleluia for the water!”

These lyrics are from a piece by the American composer Daniel Pinkham. The Festival choir will be singing this piece and others on the theme, “Healing Water — songs of renewal and hope,” including arrangements of “O healing river” and “Shall we gather at the river,” a classical masterpiece by Mendelssohn, and a rousing spiritual.
