The 11th Annual Harvest Home Concert Saturday, November 18, 2017 – 7 PM
The Harvest Home Concert is Redeemer’s musical celebration of Thanksgiving, a quintessentially American holiday, a celebration that crosses all barriers. The concert is designed to appeal to a broad audience, including people from the community who might not attend a church service.
This year we explore two themes we are grateful for–Arriving and Departing. We sing about “having arrived” as the sense of belonging and being accepted. We acknowledge that the theme is as much about the persons who remain or those who wait for the arrival, as it is about the person who is in transition. So we sing about the person who imagines his welcome home, the father expecting the arrival of his first son, the young person imagining an adult world beyond their youth, explorers leaving for adventure, and immigrants escaping oppression. Finally, we celebrate the ultimate welcome in heaven.
Our 11th-Anniversary Concert will feature tenor Kalonjee Gallimore, a young singer from the Dekalb School for the Arts, who joined us as tenor soloist in the Schubert Mass in G last year, the Redeemer Choir, Carillon Ringers, and Redeemer’s own soloists and instrumentalists.
As always, the concert is presented free of charge and will be followed by a dessert reception. Childcare is available. For more information visit www.harvesthomeconcert.org
