AfterGlow Chorus is proud to present a special concert with dual, overlapping themes of supporting Ukraine & fighting antisemitism

AfterGlow Chorus is proud to present the concert “Stand Up: Support Ukraine & Fight Antisemitism.” In this fall concert program, we hope to bring awareness to historical and cultural themes impacting Jewish and Ukrainian peoples. We will be singing music with both Ukrainian and Jewish roots, including selections from classical, jazz, pop, and Broadway genres, including:

  • “Oi u luzi chervona kalyna” (traditional Ukrainian folk song)
  • “Bless the Lord, O My Soul” by Kyrylo Stetsenko
  • “1944” by Jamala (Eurovision Song winner)
  • “Even When He Is Silent” by Kim Andre Arnesen
  • “For All We Know” by J. Fred Coots
  • “Lullabye” by Billy Joel
  • “Glitter in the Air” by Pink
  • “Sunday” by Stephen Sondheim

The concert is in the vibrant Uptown neighborhood in Oakland, CA at the beautiful First Presbyterian Church of Oakland. The church combines both wonderful visuals and acoustics with its 138-foot spire and stunning stained glass windows. There is plenty of street parking is available as well. It is also a few blocks away from the 19th Street BART Station.
