The Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth (JCSG), in Wernersville, is hosting a fundraiser and concert, If I Left the Zoo, featuring Choral Chameleon, at 3 and 7 p.m., March 21, to support the JCSG scholarship fund. The Choral Chameleon Ensemble explores the primal instincts in humans and the stories and fables of Earth’s creatures and transformations in this epic narrative concert.
The program includes “Prayers from the Ark” from British composer, Ivor R. Davies, which gives a vulnerable, empathetic voice to bird, cat, raven, mouse and dove, as well as the world premiere of Edward Thompson’s whimsical new a cappella trilogy, “Aphorisms of the Zookeeper,” Lauren Bydalek’s deeply moving “Pieces of My Heart” and musical comments from John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the form of “Blackbird” and “I Am the Walrus.”
Location: Main Chapel, 501 North Church Rd., Wernersville. Admission: 3 p.m. concert: $35 (general admission), $25 (seniors), $10 (students); 7 p.m. concert: $35 (general admission), $50 (admission and VIP reception). For more information, visit JesuitCenter.org.
