The concert has four faculty group pieces: "The Lord's Prayer," featuring audience participation; "Sarah Can Take Care of Herself," a study in autism; "Find a Way," a look at overcoming adversity; and "The Cycle," a look at life cycles of people and communities.
There also are two solo pieces by each director. "The Passion of St. Matthew" by Diane Wawrejko Cochran is an artistic interpretation of Jesus Christ's death on Good Friday. "The Time Will Come" by Melinda Blomquist, looks at the possibilities we all hope for.
