The Simple Gifts Concert Series hosts “Concert for Peace: We’re Still Here” which explores the theme of peace Sunday, March 19th, at 3 PM. Violinist Katherine Hughes and a ten-piece ensemble will perform music about peace in a variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary. Collaborating with these musicians will be representatives of different faith communities:
Hazzan Roger Weisberg from Congregation Beth Judea in Long Grove; participants from the Turkish American Society in Mount Prospect, and the Ismaili Jamatkhana in Glenview; and members of the Glenview Community Church Chancel Choir. Also enjoy a post-concert reception featuring a peace-themed art show, curated by Pat Albano from Aaron Galleries in Glenview; and a demonstration of the traditional Turkish art, Ebru. A free-will offering benefits Hands of Peace.
