Sounds of Faith
Jan. 28 @ 4:00p
Tickets start at $15*
FaithBridge will celebrate the Global Interfaith Harmony Week during the first week of February 2018, by organizing a “Sounds of Faith” concert exclusively devoted to the participation of children’s ensembles from various faith traditions throughout Chicago. We shall expand the focus of Sounds of Faith beyond the Abrahamic traditions (Judaism, Islam and Christianity) to include non-Abrahamic traditions such as Hindu, Baha’i, Buddhist and/or Indigenous American traditions. This McHenry County event will celebrate the ethnic, cultural and religious diversity of our metropolitan area. We envision five or six ensembles recruited from throughout the Chicago region that best represent the sounds (music, recitations, and chants) of their traditions. We intend to commission a 3-5 minute anthem emphasizing peace and unity that will be performed by all groups together. The concert will be recorded, and the resulting videotape will be submitted to a worldwide competition for such events sponsored by the King of Jordan.
*There are no ticket sales through Raue Center for the Arts. All tickets must be purchased through the faithbridge website.
