The program celebrates the gift and blessing of music and song – a fitting preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday, DCC artistic director and founder Marty Banghart said.

“Music is one of life’s greatest blessings,” Banghart said. “Please join us as we give thanks for the blessing of music in our everyday lives. Let music inspire and encourage your heart as you prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday.”

The concert includes John Rutter’s What Sweeter Music, a tender arrangement of a favorite Christmas carol, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, a setting of a discussion of the music of the spheres excerpted from the fifth act of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice.

This program of thankfulness also celebrates the gift of the beauty of nature, which kicks off the Deer Creek Chorale’s season-long focus on nature and water.

As part of this theme, the DCC will uphold its commitment to being Maryland’s only choir with a dual mission of singing and service and will partner with the Gunpowder River Keepers, Banghart said.

The GRK is one of 18 designated programs in the Chesapeake region’s Waterkeeper Alliance that brings awareness about protecting, conserving and restoring the Gunpowder River and its watershed for the benefit of the public.

DCC and its choirs will volunteer to do river walks throughout April to clean up the river and beautify its banks. The 2019-2020 season culminates in a water- and nature-inspired concert called, The Wonder of Nature’s Beauty, on May 3, 2020 at 4 p.m. at Goucher College’s Kraushaar Auditorium.
