Join us for a celebration of music from the Americas and Spain at 7 p.m., Friday, December 13, 2013 at Faith Lutheran Church, 10395 University Avenue, Clive, Iowa.
Our program will feature a variety of works and performers, with the centerpiece being the “Carols and Lullabies-Christmas from the Southwest” by 20th Century composer Conrad Susa. This work is scored for a chorus, harp, guitar and marimba. You’ll also hear the Jubilate Ringers, the resident hand bell choir of Faith Lutheran Church. Our performers include the 52-member Chancel Choir of Faith Lutheran Church along with local professional musicians.
