Remembrance and Hope

Presented by Western Reserve Chorale with Choral Arts Cleveland

As we find our world to be in times of pandemic, war, divisiveness, and more; we invite you to join us for "Remembrance and Hope", a concert honoring the sacrifices of veterans who have served in times of war, focusing on the need for all human souls to find hope when faced with the darkest of situations.

Local veterans have provided poetry about their own experiences to include in the program book. We look forward to their, and your, attendance of this special performance.

Western Reserve Chorale, David Gilson, Artistic Director

Now in its 31st season, Western Reserve Chorale has grown in both size and breadth of repertoire. This community chorus weathered the pandemic through virtual rehearsals and concerts, wearing masks and distancing as needed, to come back to its full numbers. The singers of WRC felt the need to offer an ambitious concert season to celebrate our continuing love of singing together and the joy of performing for a live audience. We are excited to present this full-scale concert in collaboration with Choral Arts Cleveland, accompanied by local instrumentalists and featured soloists.

To fulfill our mission of providing free choral music to the Greater Cleveland community we rely on public grants and contributions from individual supporters.
