As the name suggests, One World, Many Voices will transport the audience around the world, featuring music with lively rhythms and instruments from many different cultures.
“One World, Many Voices embodies how music brings us all closer together,” says Alex Gartner, PCC’s Artistic & Executive Director. “This concert invites our audience to discover and appreciate the diversity of the world around us and perhaps to realize that when we look close enough, we aren’t so different from one another after all.”
Join our 250+ singers as they set the tone for an afternoon dedicated to the promotion of peace and understanding with “Sim Shalom,” a heartfelt prayer for global harmony. Continue on an adventure as our singers embark on a musical journey with enchanting songs that weave tales of exploration, discovery and unity. Feel the heartbeat of the continent with vibrant rhythms from various African countries. Songs like “Bonse Aba” and “Kye Kye Kule” celebrate the diverse musical traditions of the African continent and are sure to bring the audience to their feet.
Experience the energy and passion of African American spirituals with dynamic performances of songs that resonate the rich history and resilience of a community, uplifting spirits and inspiring hope in the process. Lighten the mood with humorous storytelling through songs like “The Goat” and “Why Not?” These delightful tunes add a touch of laughter to the evening, creating a well-rounded and enjoyable experience for all.
One World, Many Voices will also feature members who have joined the Pensacola Children’s Chorus through a program funded by the Escambia Children’s Trust. A taxpayer-funded children’s services agency, the Trust focuses on providing impactful services to Escambia County’s most vulnerable youth.
“This concert will showcase the heart of our Children’s Trust program,” says Gartner. “It is a testament to the impact that music can have on a child’s life. To see them singing and smiling alongside youth from all walks of life is a symbol of hope for a prosperous future.”
One World, Many Voices will be held at First Baptist Church (500 N. Palafox). Tickets for festival seating are available and range from $15–$35.
