Spring Concert to Benefit the Sergeant Sullivan Fund at National Jewish Health's Center of Excellence on Deployment-Related Lung Disease -- "Now Nearer Blow the Bugles"

Saturday, April 30, 2016
3 p.m.
First Congregational United Church of Christ
945 G Street, NW
Washington, DC

The stirring Dona Nobis Pacem of Ralph Vaughan Williams is the the centerpiece of our spring benefit concert. Written in the years just prior to the outbreak of World War II, this masterwork of Vaughan Williams blends the poetry of Walt Whitman with the cry for peace ("Dona nobis pacem") from the Agnus Dei. We will perform the piece in the rarely-heard version for strings and piano, a reduced orchestration made by the composer himself. Soprano Laura Choi Stuart returns to the Chorale as soprano soloist in a program that also features classic choral works by Handel and Parry.

Our 2015-2016 beneficiary is the Sergeant Sullivan Fund (SSF) of the National Jewish Health's Center of Excellence on Deployment-Related Lung Disease. Founded in memory of Marine Sergeant Thomas Sullivan, the SSF raises funds for medical research related to the prevention and treatment of deployment-related illnesses.
