Speaking Out

On the heels of the most divisive presidential election in memory, Lawrence’s nationally-recognized choirs present “Speaking Out.” The performance will explore vocal music’s ability to make a difference by bringing communities together to provoke change or to heal wounds. The program will feature songs that have toppled empires, roused nations to revolt, called us to account for our failures to live up to our dream and shown us our better selves.

Three upcoming concerts, all in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel, will be dedicated to  benefiting the St. Joseph Food Program. Audience members are encouraged to make a charitable donation — monetary or a non-perishable food item. All monetary donations are tax deductible, with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to St. Joseph Food Program.
