Choral Director Leads ‘People’s Chorus’
Madison, Wis. (August 7, 2015) – Edgewood College Assistant Professor Sergei Pavlov is bringing his talent to a unique stage. He is one of two conductors for the ‘People’s Chorus,’ a performance to bring awareness to the problem of homelessness in Greater Madison.
Some of the performers in the People’s Chorus are homeless themselves, Pavlov says.
“Music can be one of the ways to address challenges in society, and to hopefully make compassionate choices to meet those challenges,” Pavlov says. “Of course it is our way.”
The concert benefits Porchlight, a social services organization in Madison that seeks to decrease the homeless population by providing shelter, housing, supportive services and a sense of community in ways that empower residents and program participants to positively shape their lives.
This special concert is at 7:30 pm, Monday, August 17, 2015, at the Orpheum Theater, 216 State Street, in Madison. The concert is free to attend, and there will be a freewill offering in support of Porchlight.
