Bridging faith and music: Two Nevada County choirs to participate in Sacramento region’s first multi-faith Church Choir Festival

Submitted to The Union

SacSings Sacred, the Sacramento area's first multi-faith church choir festival will be held on Saturday, Feb. 10, at Pleasant Grove Community Church in Roseville.

Nineteen choirs — including choirs from Nevada City United Methodist Church and Grass Valley's Calvary Bible Church — will perform selections of their favorite inspirational music before joining together to perform two joint pieces.

Represented among the choirs will be eight Christian denominations (and three non-denominational Christian churches), plus Jewish and Buddhist choirs.

Starting at 10 a.m., there will be morning and afternoon performances of nine and 10 choirs respectively, with the event concluding at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are free and are available. They can be ordered from http://www.bit.ly/SacSingsSacred.

The purpose of SacSings Sacred is to celebrate the faith-based traditional choir and sacred choral music, new and old.

It is conceived as a day of discovery, sharing, and fellowship — an opportunity for singers and the audience to connect with one another through the beautiful sacred music that bridges faith traditions and styles of worship.
