Update: Lake Ridge Chorale has canceled its “Then and Now” Concert.
For 10 years, Lake Ridge Chorale has been gracing the community with music.
The organization, previously known as Celebration Singers, is celebrating its anniversary with a free concert this month.
Named “Then and Now,” the program starts at 8 p.m. on March 13 at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, 12351 All Saints Place in Lake Ridge.
It will feature newer music and songs that have been performed previously, according to a release from Lake Ridge Chorale.
“Out of the Darkness,” by Greg Gilpin, is among those being presented. It was created in honor of the anniversary.
“I’m always looking for a text that speaks to me musically,” Gilpin said in a release. “I love the idea that this text could be interpreted as romantic or a meaning of gratitude, admiration — anything that music inspires. I hope each singer and each listener finds their own meaning as the choir performs this newly commissioned work.”
During the concert, Lake Ridge Chorale is accepting donations and non-perishables for area charities.
The non-profit provides donations to Action in Community Through Service (ACTS), H.U.G.S., and the Kara Foundation.
NOVEC HELPS, the Prince William Chamber of Commerce, the Prince William County Arts Council; Prince William County Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism, and UPS are supporters of Lake Ridge Chorale.
There will be a reception following the concert.
