Delta Community Choir spring concert


For more than a decade, the Delta Community Choir has adhered to its mission of “building community through song” by highlighting one local nonprofit organization at each of its biannual concerts.

As per tradition, this year’s spring concert, beginning 3 p.m. Sunday (May 19) at Our Savior Lutheran Church, is free to attend, but the choir will collect voluntary donations for the House of Promise, an organization that “provides survivors of sexual abuse and sex trafficking unconditional love, acceptance and a place to heal and rebuild their lives,” according to its website.

The theme of the concert is “Spring to Life: Songs of Strength, Hope and Joy.” The setlist “reflects the journey from the pain and struggle of marginalized people to the hope, light and joy that can be found when people support and uplift one another,” featuring songs from a variety of genres, including folk, gospel, pop and show tunes.

The concert will be the first under the musical leadership of Zach Everly, who succeeded founding musical and artistic director Ellen McKenzie in January. Everly is the director of vocal music for Charlotte Public Schools, where he leads the 7th- through 12th-grade choirs. He serves on the Michigan School Vocal Music Association’s board of directors and is a member of the Capital City Music Collective’s Riverbend Voices and the Central United Methodist Church Choir.
