Phoenix Chamber Choir and Chrysalis Vocal Ensemble present "This House of Peace", our final concert of the 2017-18 season. This concert centers around the 2008 Ralph Johnson work which shares the name of the concert. This piece was written commissioning the opening of Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield, Oregon. The text was drawn from actual quotes from Sacred Heart caregivers, patients and their families. “These words demonstrate the dynamic relationship between healer and patient,” says composer Ralph Johnson. “The soloists sings verses of a ‘healer’s prayer’ adapted from an old Gaelic house blessing which unifies the work.” We hope you join us in our quest to bring peace and unity through music.

Repertoire: 
Kirke Meechem, Winging Wildly
Tarik O’Regan, Tal vez tenemoz tiempo 
Paul Mealor, Locus Iste
Ola Gjeilo, The Lake Isle
Ralph Johnson, This House of Peace
