'Everyone Sang' at First Presbyterian

Choirs joining for jubilant performance in Livermore

The Mission Peak Chamber Singers are joining with the First Presbyterian Chancel Choir and the East Bay People's Choir -- a combination of more than 100 singers, a brass ensemble and percussionists -- for a grand celebration of the human spirit called "Everyone Sang."

The title comes from a 1919 poem written to honor the end of World War I, a jubilant commemoration of the power of singing to unite people and heal divides.

The Mission Peak Chamber Singers was formed as the Ohlone Chamber Singers in 1980 then became an independent nonprofit group in 2014 after community colleges withdrew support for choral arts. Now they are dependent on donors, fundraising and concert ticket sales, and gratefully give back the gift of music.

Each year's season begins with "Christmas at the Mission" in December, followed by lighter musical fare in March and a finale in May, which is Sunday's concert.

The one performance will be at 4 p.m. this Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church of Livermore, 2020 Fifth St. Tickets at the door are $25 adults; $15 children and students.
