The Spirit Sings concert has been postponed due to concerns regarding Covid-19. Please see below. Thank you.

To our friends and supporters,

In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, we have postponed the CAS “The Spirit Sings” concert scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2020, at the First Presbyterian Church, Racine. The Choral Arts Society Board is committed to the health and safety of our staff, audiences, musicians, and the larger community. We fully support the efforts of public health officials to control the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to consult all guidelines made by local, state or federal health officials, including rescheduling further performances, should that become necessary.

Tickets to The Spirit Sings and Flexpasses will be honored on the date of the rescheduled concert. If we are unable to reschedule, single ticket holders may ease the financial burden placed on our organization by designating the value of the ticket as a tax-deductible donation, substitute their ticket for a future concert, or request a refund. Please contact us by
e-mail. Replacement dates for this weekend’s concert and any future schedule updates will be communicated via email and on our website.

If you have any questions regarding this schedule change or any other concert-related matter, please contact us at admin@choralartsonline.org. Thanks for your patience, support, and understanding as we work to ensure good health for everyone involved in our programs and performances.

Sincerely,

The Choral Arts Society Board and Staff

You’ll be inspired!

Throughout history, spirituality and song have been intimately connected. From ancient chants to “that old-time religion,” European motets to contemporary praise musi, people the world over have found a way to share their spirituality by lifting their voices together in song. The human need to give voice to faith has inspired some of the world’s most cherished tunes. Join CAS as we enjoy a cross-section of religious expression from around the world. Let a little sunshine into your soul while you wait for spring in Wisconsin.
