2020 has been quite a year. Between the pandemic, fires and climate catastrophes, and the general political landscape, there is no doubt that we have lost many lives.  This year, the choir presents its Requiem to pay tribute to all that is lost and what we have gained. We would like to dedicate this service to our healthcare workers; justice leaders Ruth Bader Ginsburg and John Lewis; the countless Black lives that we lost to systemic brutality, to get the discussion of equality on the table, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor among them; lives lost because of COVID-19, to natural disasters. We also honor the souls in our own community that have moved forward from this earth to join the ancestors; we will dedicate new bricks in our beautiful Memorial Garden. May the music offered in this service be meditative, reflective, and healing, ushering us to a more hopeful tomorrow.
