Sanctuary

Voces Novae's first concert of the 2018-19 season will explore the topic of Sanctuary. We will perform this concert twice on Sunday, October 21.

At 2pm on Sunday, October 21, come hear an uplifting 40-minute concert at the Unitarian Universalist Church. The program includes music by Peruvian composer Francisco Pulgar Vidal, settings of texts by DACA Dreamers, and music by choral favorites, Gjeilo and Whitacre.  Pay what you are inspired to pay after the concert in a free will offering.

OR, join us for a choral adventure later that day! We’ve arranged late afternoon tours of the Exotic Feline Rescue Center, a sanctuary to over 200 tigers, lions, and other large cats. Tours will start between 3:30 and 4pm. Then, join us for high tea and the concert at Clayshire Castle (5 minutes from EFRC, outside Bowling Green, IN). A donation of $30 ($15, 12-and-under) includes both admission to EFRC and the concert. We encourage you to get tickets in advance for this limited-seating event.
