The Harvest Home Concert

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 7 PM

The Harvest Home Concert is Redeemer’s musical celebration of Thanksgiving, a quintessentially American holiday, a celebration that crosses all barriers. The concert is designed to appeal to a broad audience, including people from the community who might not attend a church service.

This year we explore two themes we are grateful for--Sound and Silence. Beginning with traditional seasonal tunes like "We Gather Together" and "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come", the choir then celebrates the sound of singing with contemporary pieces by Alice Parker and Andre Thomas. Two popular pieces from the 1950s and 1970s contrast the expectation that when exciting things happen we often expect loud fanfares, but may find the experience strangely quiet. We often talk about getting away from the noise of the city for the quiet of nature, but in several pieces we explore the fact that nature's "silence" is full of sound. We sing about times when life leaves us at a loss for words and we lose our song, when we rely on others to speak for us, and how ultimately our song and our joy are restored, frequently through the rediscovery of the gratitude that permeates the Thanksgiving holiday.
