THIS IS A NEWS RELEASE FROM FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, CORPUS CHRISTI

 

At 5:30 pm on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7 in the PERFORMING ARTS CENTER at TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY, CORPUS CHRISTI, an Interfaith Concert of Freedom & Peace will be held for the entire community. This will be a follow up to last year's 9-11 Service of Remembrance presented by Corpus Christi's Abrahamic Faiths - Jewish, Christian, Muslim – which are joining together in the common denominator of music. These congregations represent Christian, Muslim and Jewish citizens of our Community, as well as the Institute of Interfaith Dialogue, the interfaith Community and other congregations around the city.

All local singers are invited to join the Community Massed Choir, directed by Ross Bernhardt and Dennis Richardson which will rehearse that Sunday, October 7 at 4pm in the TAMUCC Center of the Arts then sing on the concert. Music will be provided. Other featured organizations will include the Del Mar Children's Chorus, the Gospel Choir of Holy Cross Catholic Church and Mariachi Torero.

The highlight of the evening will be the Whirling Dervishes from Turkey, who represent the Sufism branch of the Islamic faith. This order of Sufis is renowned for its practice of self-discipline and concentration, leading through dance and music to an ecstatic trance in which one's entire being is centered on the spiritual purity of the self.

There is no admission charge.
