In what has become a regular tradition, the global Songs of Hope performance company of youth from countries worldwide is returning to Chatfield for a new concert at 7 pm on Saturday, July 14, in the historic Potter Auditorium. The award-winning Songs of Hope concert showcases the talents of young artists ranging in age from 10 to 20 drawn to Minnesota from countries all across the globe.
The annual Songs of Hope project has a well-deserved reputation for lively, upbeat shows enjoyed by audiences of all ages. With close to 90 performers on stage from a dozen countries, the concert will serve up a delightful mix of global music from places large and small, with a special medley of moving songs focused on the desires of people everywhere to live freely (in all the many ways they define freedom). Mixed with the global music will be a wide variety of U.S. songs chosen to be perfect entertainment on a warm summer’s night: Broadway hits, traditional folk, jazz, blues, rock ‘n roll, and much more.
More than a choir, Songs of Hope dazzles audiences with an array of rich cultural dress from countries across the globe, energetic movement by the performers, music by a talented band, imaginative sets, and much more.
This concert is free and open to the public.
A huge thank you to the Chatfield Booster Club for once again sponsoring this year's Songs of Hope concert. We'd also like to thank the Chatfield Public Schools, St. Mary's Catholic Church, Chosen Valley Care Center, and the Chatfield Public Pool for helping to provide a welcoming Chatfield experience to Songs of Hope.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
