This year’s concert, “Songs of Hope,” will feature both adult and young singers and musicians from six
faith communities – including Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist vocal ensembles from across the
metropolitan area who will share their songs and music of hope. Also featured will be celebrated soprano
Christine Brewer, performing new music by composer and clarinetist Stephanie Berg that was recently
premiered at Powell Symphony Hall, and a specially-assembled Interfaith Youth Chorus led by Maria
Ellis. New this year will be a storyteller chosen in collaboration with the MU Extension Division
Storytelling Festival. After the concert, the audience will be invited to mingle outside on Washington
Boulevard with the artists and faith ensembles and participate in creating “#HopeMural” developed by an
interfaith group of teens through Interfaith Quest led by Beth Damsgaard-Rodriguez.

faith and arts communities by using the unique power of the arts to create shared experiences and
inspire thoughtful discussion among diverse audiences.
