Music & Meditations

A Peace Concert for the Millennium

November 4, 1999
Cathedral of St. Paul, St. Paul, Minnesota

In anticipation of the millennium and to reunite past bridging partners, the Minnesota Chorale presented this evening of sacred music from the Russian, Jewish, African American, and European American traditions with spoken meditations by Twin Cities and international community leaders. The evening was divided into five segments highlighting five cultural and/or social themes: Russian, Jewish, African-American, Christian, and youth. Each segment reflected on one of five levels of peace-making, beginning with peace within the individual, peace in our families, peace in our cities, peace in our nations, and finally global peacemaking. Distinguished meditation speakers included 1976 Nobel Peace Price laureate Betty Williams and Archbishop Harry J. Flynn. Special musical guest appearances were made by youth choir Angelica Cantanti, the Sam Davis Memorial Singers, Sanford Moore, and cantors Barry Abelson from Temple Israel and Greg Denysenko from St. Mary's Orthodox Cathedral.
