The Echoes of Peace Choir directed by Sara Thomsen
With special guests Rachael Kilgour, Charlie Parr, and Kako's Choir
The Echoes of Peace Choir's Spring Concert, "A Place to Call Home," will focus on the issues of homelessness and affordable housing. Directed by Sara Thomsen, the concert will take place 4:00pm, Sunday, April 27 at Sacred Heart Music Center, 201 West 4th Street. Admission is free. The concert will feature special guest artists Rachael Kilgour, Charlie Parr, and Kako's Choir, a children's choir founded by the Kako Foundation in partnership with Myers-Wilkins Community School Collaborative.
The performance is in memory of advocate of the homeless and affordable housing champion, Steve O'Neil (1950-2013). The evening will include an update on the Steve O'Neil Apartments (which are under construction just across the street from Sacred Heart) and ways you can support this affordable housing project and other efforts to end homelessness in Duluth and St. Louis County.
The concert is presented by Echoes of Peace, a non-profit arts organization who's goal is to inspire awareness, action and reflection on critical social issues using music and the arts.
This activity is funded in part by the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council with money from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
