This summer, members of our Sanctuary Choir (along with families and friends) will be traveling to Paris, France July 2 – 9. The group will participate in the Paris Choral Festival, hosted by Music Celebrations International, commemorating the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and the Liberation of France. Prior to the finale performance, the group will journey to nearby Normandy for an Independence Day choral remembrance and wreath-laying at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial – site of the June 6th, 1944 Allied Invasion.
The festival will feature works by Dan Forrest, Fauré, and others, honoring the occasion and culminating in a grand musical commemoration for the heroes that fought for freedom during the world’s greatest invasion. The concert will take place in L’église de la Madeleine, one of the most historic and beautiful churches in Paris. Please pray for us as we take this magnificent and meaningful journey.
