Christ Episcopal Church’s artists-in-residence, the chamber choir Convivium, offer a unique concert program on Saturday, February 17 in Oakland and Sunday, February 18 at Christ Church. “Reaching for Light” tells the stories of survivors who fought for the greater good during their lifetimes. This diverse concert program emphasizes the dire need for collective action against violent oppression, ranging from modern works protesting police brutality against Black women to Renaissance polyphony that artfully decries religious persecution. Many selections bring pivotal historic figures to life in a moving appeal for peace, including abolitionist Harriet Tubman, suffragist Mabel Lee, and even a survivor of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. Overall, Convivium’s upcoming performance reminds us that our collective faith in a brighter future is a unifying sign of hope for humanity.
