Please join us on Friday, March 31, 2017 at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Bridgeport, CT for what promises to be an unforgettable evening of music and inspiration! The event will include the following activities:

6:00pm – Masterclass in Gospel Music (optional): An uplifting and inclusive intergenerational workshop on how to sing and appreciate gospel music led by renowned singer / songwriter, Michael Brown. Participants will learn several rousing gospel songs, which they will perform during the 7:30 concert as the “Saecula Community Gospel Choir”. All are welcome – even those who may prefer just to hum along, clap their hands, or simply observe! There is no expectation of prior choral experience or musical training, and participants will never be asked to sing by themselves unless they wish to do so. The only requirements are an open mind and a smile!

7:30pm – Concert: An informal “song share”-style performance featuring members of the Saecula Women’s ChoirUnited Girls’ ChoirVocalJoy, St. John’s Episcopal Church Choir, and the “Saecula Community Gospel Choir” (participants from the 6:00pm masterclass). The ensembles will perform both individually and jointly, at times inviting the audience to participate. You will surely leave feeling refreshed, invigorated, and energized!

Michael Brown, guest artist, is a singer/songwriter and conductor whose music career began at the age of four. He simply woke up one morning and started playing his family upright piano. He heard the music in his soul and just knew he could play it. Several years later, Brown has the privilege of working with students from around the globe. Gospel Music is his specialty as his roots were established in a Gospel Penecostal Church. Gospel singing, for many of his students was foreign. However, it wasn’t long before they were excited and attracted to the spirit, sound, and rhythm of Gospel music.


Singing Together for Peace is a fundraiser for the Sisters in Song Scholarship Fund, which provides financial support for girls and young women who would otherwise be unable to afford high-quality musical training.
