The Opening Out: Songs of Creation (Saturday, May 11, 2024)


Join our Springfield Choral Society small ensembles, as we present this final program of the Springfield Liturgical Arts Festival! Inspired by the festival's theme of creation, we will interweave music and text that explore the relationship between divine and human creation. Structured by the seven days of the Genesis narrative, this is a program you won't want to miss. Let there be singing!


Saturday, May 11, 7:30pm, Central Baptist Church, Springfield
