Saturday May 6, 2017
St Bart's Episcopal Church
1790 LaVista Rd. ATL 7:30pm
featuring repertoire about water and highlighting the work of Wells For Hope.
Water is necessary for life. But water is much more to humans than just a requirement. It is a symbol of life itself. Join us Saturday May 6th for a concert that contemplates what water means to us all. A wide selection of musical styles and themes will guide us through as we imagine droughts, longing, remembering, rain, rivers, oceans, floods, storms, waves, calm, stillness and hope.
Majok Marier, founder of the organization Wells for Hope, will be on hand to tell us about the work his group does to bring wells and water to people in South Sudan.
At the reception after the concert we can continue our water conversations and bring communities together around the shared need for water.

More about the May 6th Concert...
Director Mary Root, accompanist Leanne Herrmann, and the 50 men and woman in this lauded community chorus, will share songs and stories of water, reminding us that, at least in some ways, people are the same. We all need water and we all feel water's life giving effects. Yet we all can also comprehend its damaging effects (when there is too much or too little). And because water is so important to us it becomes an incredibly significant symbol to us all as well. Dive right in with us into a concert of songs about WATER.
