Please consider a gift to support Harmonia.

In Remembrance Free Virtual Concert, November 8
The first event of our season is a concert about remembering.
A broader season of remembrance begins with All Saints’ Day (November 1), which celebrates all living saints, and All Souls’ Day (November 2), which commemorates those who have died. This virtual concert debuts on Remembrance Sunday, which ushers in Veterans Day later in the week. Both days honor those who served and died fighting past wars. This year we also remember those who have recently passed away from the coronavirus.
Our tribute includes music of Purcell, MacMillan, Ramsey, Park, Paulus, and Victoria-- anthems, motets, and madrigals of pain, death, sorrow, hope, and eternal life. May our gift of music comfort you, as often only inspired music can.
You will be able to access the video beginning on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at 2:00 P.M. Access is open until at least December 31, 2020.
Music of light and shadows, life and loss, hope and rebirth. Stunning lighting and sublime a cappella.
