Box Factory for the Arts
St. Joseph, MI
We’ll be doing our show for adults, consisting of our original songs, as well as classic songs of the 1960’s folk revival. For part of both sets of this concert we will be joined by a wonderful children’s choir called “All God’s Children Community Choir” and their their co-founding directors, Larry and Sandy Feldman. Comprised of a racially diverse group of boys and girls, ages three to eighteen, the choir was formed in 2001 with the goal of bridging the racial divide in the Benton Harbor - St. Joseph area. We have sung with “All God’s Children” a number of times in the last 17 years, and are honored to have them join us at this performance — both because of what they add to our concert musically, but also because of the hope for racial harmony which they represent.
