Widening Circles – A Call for Peace

Oct. 6

Poet and novelist Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “I live my life in widening circles…” In this opening concert of the season, the Meadows choirs use the medium
of music to express a commitment to spreading a message of love, acceptance and freedom throughout a broken world.
