ONE VOICE:  For Peace

VIH is excited to bring to our audience A Sermon from the Mountain, a work by one of America’s foremost choral composers and arrangers, Alice Parker.  The work celebrates the words and values of Martin Luther King Jr.  Composed shortly after his assassination, Parker uses the musical styles of spirituals, gospel music, blues and American folk music to personalize the message “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

ONE VOICE:  Sing-Along Messiah

Community and choir join their voices in harmony with Handel’s great masterwork accompanied by a 25-piece orchestra, excellent soloists and projections of beautiful calligraphy by Timothy Botts. The McHenry County College Chorus will supplement the on-stage choir.  This is one of our area’s most meaningful holiday traditions, and a strong vision of hope proclaimed in one voice.

ONE VOICE:  Around The World

This concert season marks a new chapter for VIH, as we become part of Encore! Music Academy.  The two unique concerts on this day showcase the four Encore Youth Choirs and VIH, showing that choral singing is a life-long, life-enriching activity.  VIH combines with two EYC choirs to present the choral masterwork, Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria, accompanied by full orchestra.  There will be several pieces combining all five choirs, and each choir will be featured in their own selections of music from around the world
