The Santa Cruz Peace Chorale is recognized as a community treasure along California’s Central Coast. A past recipient of a Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County grant, this community chorus, under the musical direction of Aileen Vance, has also been honored by folk icon Pete Seeger’s personal contributions to its repertoire.
In these times of war and the fanning of the flames of misunderstanding, the Peace Chorale presents traditional & contemporary songs that offer alternatives to hatred & violence. This year, the Chorale has also focused on the Occupy Movement, singing songs that accompany this exciting nation-wide public protest.
The choir depends on member pledges and community support to keep on singing. This is our one big fundraising event of the year. The silent auction begins at 7:00 pm. Come early to bid on local art, fine wines, gift certificates, crafts, services, and more! Stay for the concert. From labor anthems to elegant hymns, from classic folk songs to traditional South African 4-part harmony, there’s sure to be cause for singing along at the commemoration of our 10th year together!
There is a requested donation of $15.00 at the door. No one will be turned away.
