Get On Your Feet: Music of Love, Peace and Action!
The Community Renewal Chorus’s 47th annual benefit concert, taking place on May 20 and 21.
Brian Bloye, Director
Blending classic motets, rousing spirituals, and contemporary favorites, The Community Renewal Chorus (CRC) weaves a musical narrative of the diversity that makes our nation great with Get on Your Feet: Songs of Peace, Love, and Action.
Concerts are 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2017, at Euclid Avenue United Methodist Church (405 S Euclid Ave, Oak Park, IL) and 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 21, 2017, at St. Alphonsus Church (1429 W. Wellington Avenue, Chicago, IL).
Join Director Brian Bloye and the CRC in their mission “to promote and celebrate diversity, equality, peace and justice through music.” Revisit texts from Thomas Jefferson, revel in the mysticism of Ola Gjello, and sing songs from the Civil Rights Movement. Experience the eternal hopefulness of the American spirit through the music of Moses Hogan, Burt Bacharach, and the Miami Sound Machine. Let the music embolden you to love your neighbor as yourself and inspire you to get on your feet and take action!
