The Torch Be Yours – Songs of Faith, Remembrance and Hope
April 29, 2018, 5:00 pm
First United Methodist Church, 1004 North Mays Street, Round Rock, TX
During this concert, the combined voices of the Round Rock Community Choir and First United Methodist Church will take the audience back in time to the songs of World Wars I & II, with a musical salute to our soldiers, celebrating the patriotism that swelled in our hearts, and expressing devastating grief when many did not return home. From the intrepid battlefields of Europe and the Pacific, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Iraq, we will remember the sacrifice of all those who protected our dreams and our realities.
Listeners will delight to the swinging rhythms of favorites from the fabulous 40’s and reflect on the deeper truths woven into well-known spirituals and folk songs from the past century. The spirit of this music will evoke feelings of hope and the promise of better tomorrows.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the concert we will perform in June as musical ambassadors to the D-Day Commemoration Ceremonies in Normandy and Paris, France.
Save the date for what promises to be an extraordinary concert!
