SPRING SPECIAL MUSIC SUNDAY—APRIL 30: During our worship on Sunday, April 30, the Congregational UCC Choir will offer a performance of Illuminare by composer and Iowa native, Elaine Hagenberg. The work will be conducted by Dr. Christopher Nakielski, with Bill Crouch on the organ, choir members and several area instrumentalists.
llluminare is Hagenberg’s first extended work, consisting of five-movements for chorus and chamber orchestra. Using lesser-known sacred Latin texts, the piece takes us through a season of beauty and goodness that has been disrupted by darkness and confusion. But as Light gradually returns, hope is restored, illuminating our future and guiding us in peace.
Please plan to join others here for this beloved springtime event. And invite a friend!
