This year, we will be performing this beautiful concert twice, so if you miss the first one, you can make it to the second! Or, you could come to both. 🙂 The first concert is on Sept 27th (7:00 pm) @ Bethany Reformed Church in Kalamazoo; the second concert will be on Sept 29th (6:00 pm) @ Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Allegan. You can find our event on Facebook here.There will be no charge for these concerts, but we will be taking up a collection. This helps pay for our musicians and funds future projects (of which I always have a few up my sleeve) with our ensemble. The best part of all is that we are now a 501c3! This means you can donate and take it off your taxes.
The Celebris Ensemble invites you to an evening of stunning, uplifting music featuring works by Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn, Elizabeth Poston, and Craig Courtney, as well as world premieres of several pieces by Evgeniya Kozhevnikova. Entitled “Exaltation & Resolution,” the program deals with pivotal moments in our lives: moments of love and death, heartache and hope, and—above all—taking joy and strength in moments that may never come again.
