BENEFITING: OPUS 327 NFP
The Trebles of The St. Luke's Choir, children aged 8 to 15, will receive scholarship to travel to England to sing Evensong in summer residencies at Gloucester and Lichfield Cathedrals. This life-changing experience of singing for worship every day in resplendent acoustical settings will help to develop the kids' musical and spiritual growth. During our stay we will tweet, blog-post, and send pictures and video to our donors and followers, our "1000 People to England."
For well over a century, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church of Evanston has enriched the cultural and spiritual life of Chicagoland through its music programs. Long recognized a leader in the teaching and performance of church music, St. Luke’s today continues its rich tradition of praising God through expertly performed Anglican choral music. The St. Luke’s model of choral singing, in which children sing the soprano (or treble) part, follows the ancient tradition of cathedral choirs in Britain, but updated to include girls as well as boys. This model provides unique opportunities for children to participate fully in Sunday morning worship. Young trebles are equal musical partners with their adult colleagues in the alto, tenor and bass sections.
