Hey guess what! Gaudete is about to present our second offering on January 20, 7 pm, at the Althea Center in Denver. As always, there is no ticket required (although your donation to help support the choir is always gratefully accepted). The theme for this offering is Carry Me Home, involving music that gently explores the concept of death.
When we think of death, we often think of fear and pain and loss. This music approaches death from a different angle – that of a continuing journey toward the home from which we originally came. Rather than inducing terror or prolonging grief, this music instead explores death as a final comfort or, even more, as a homecoming bringing blessed rest at the end of life.
In other news, Gaudete is now a 501(c)(3), Colorado non-profit choir! Our goal continues to be to present monthly offerings of sacred music throughout much of the year. If you would like to donate to the choir, are interested in learning more about what we do, or would like to find out about auditions and other membership requirements, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And keep watching for our upcoming offerings. We have some exciting events for you throughout the rest of this season…
See you on the 20th!
