Join Resounding Achord for “Take Me Home,” a choral music program centered around home, shelter, and community. Highlights include two new arrangements written for the choir, the US premiere of Ariel Quintana’s “Furusato,” and heart-stirring folksongs from America, Africa, and Cuba.
All donations collected for this concert will benefit two organizations that support the homeless in Santa Clara County: Village House, an interfaith women’s shelter, and the Winter Faith Collaborative, a Santa Clara County movement of faith communities with a common aim to shelter their neighbors who live outdoors.
All are welcome! A free will offering will be collected a the door, or you may donate online when reserving your tickets. Advanced reservations are recommended.
