Choral Friends:
My 2022 choir tour of Israel was truly “life-changing” (and I’m not one to use that phrase lightly). From the 3600 year old Abraham’s Gate, to the rugged countryside in Galilee, to the Nazareth well where Mary would have taken young Jesus daily, to wandering the streets of Old City Jerusalem at night….every day was dozens of moments of “faith becoming sight”. Then, to get to sing in Nazareth, or at the shores of the Sea of Galilee, or in Bethlehem, or on the Mount of Olives, and to meet dear Jewish and Palestinian people who resonated with our sacred music- it’s hard to capture in words. I’m thrilled to be working again with Dr. Pearl Shangkuan, easily one my very favorite conductors to collaborate with, and with Music Celebrations International, to repeat this experience with a new group of people. By the time this tour is done, the people, the places, and the music will have made an impact that will last the rest of your life. I can’t wait to share it with you!
