A choral concert featuring the premiere of ‘O God, Thou Art my God’ by Jacob Ewens and other works that express a longing for refuge.

About this event
Directed by singer and producer Jacob Ewens, this concert for choir, piano, and organ explores the yearning for sanctuary from violence and injustice as it moves, musically, towards a radical insistence on hope.
Featuring the world premiere of Ewens’ “O God, Thou Art My God”, as well as music by Rachmaninoff, Brahms, Whitacre, Tavener, Gjeilo, and Steel.
All ticket proceeds will be donated to The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), which strives to ensure that everyone has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge.
During times of displacement, UNHCR provides critical emergency assistance in the form of clean water, sanitation and healthcare, as well as shelter, blankets, household goods and sometimes food. They also arrange transport and assistance packages for people who return home, and income-generating projects for those who resettle.
