Cantare, a 16-voice ensemble of professional singers from Chattanooga, Knoxville, Monteagle, and North Georgia directed by Dr. Kevin Ford, will be in concert Sunday afternoon. The free concert is a benefit for the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation.
Dr. Ford is the director of choral activities at UTC and music director of Second Presbyterian Church-Chattanooga. Musical selections performed will range from ancient through modern and will include Morton Lauridsen’s ethereal composition Lux Aeterna.
“We are delighted that this talented chorus has chosen the cause of hospice care” said Garry Mac, spokesman for Hospice of Chattanooga. “The audience is going to be overly impressed by the music and they’ll love that the concert is free.”
The free concert is Sunday at 5 p.m. at Brainerd United Methodist Church, 4315 Brainerd Road. Donations will be accepted to benefit the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation which provides funds and support to patients in this region who are unable to pay for hospice care.
