Powerful Music for Troubling Times (ticket giveaway!)

Monday, February 28, 2022 Leave a Comment

Our friends at The Colorado Choir have another concert this weekend - "Songs of Love and Loss." They were supposed to sing this concert in mid-March of 2020, but we all know what happened there. Everything shut down the day after their dress rehearsal.

Needless to say, they're thrilled to sing this music for us now! The group has been around for 40 years, and this is the first time they've ever commissioned an original song:  the brand-new work "Abandon" by Z. Randall Stroope. The choir has sung several of his pieces before and really connects with his work (see video below).

Two of the songs are a tribute to Ukraine:  "Prayer of the Children" by Kurt Bestor and "Earth Song" by Frank Ticheli. Just try not to cry.

***As a special promotion for Central Park Parents readers, they're giving us two tickets to either Friday or Saturday night's concert. Just share the post about this article on CPP's Facebook page with your friends to enter - the drawing will be held Thursday at noon.***
