The Chamber Singers will perform at this year’s 2014 commemoration service.
The 2014 Holocaust Commemoration will be held at First Church Congregational on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 at 7:30pm. The Guest Speaker is Shiri Sandler. Shiri is the US Director of theAuschwitz Jewish Center. She directs the Center’s Holocaust and Ethics programming for US Military Students. Shiri is a dynamic speaker and the programming directly relates to this year’s National Holocaust Commemoration Theme of “the American Response.” This will be a very uplifting discussion that links the past with the future, and displays how our government is attempting to teach the young cadets so they learn from the past in a unique way.
The composers who gave rise to what has become known as the Great American Songbook translated positive values and an optimistic spirit into the soundtrack of American life. Their songs offered hope of better days during the Great Depression, built morale during two world wars, and helped build social bridges within our culture. The FCCC is proud to feature songs from this inspirational body of work, produced by such familiar tunesmiths as George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, and Richard Rodgers. We invite you to experience with us the positive power of singing these uniquely American songs.
The Chamber Singers and Concert Choir will perform in a concert version of the Opera Carmen with the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra and Mendelssohn choir.
