Interfaith Choir & Orchestra rock the house at California Center for the Arts!
There aren’t many genuine “variety shows” still left these days, but if you were at the California Center for the Arts on March 9th, you were treated to an unforgettable night of musical variety and celebration by some truly amazing performers.
The San Diego Interfaith Choir and Orchestra – headed by Executive Director Justin Gray – has been putting on these shows a few times a year for a couple of years now – and every show is different. Last weekend’s performance didn’t disappoint, with a dizzying array of singers and musicians all donating their time to support the work of Interfaith Community Services.
Nearly 1000 people packed the house to see Gray’s all-volunteer professional ensemble perform classic and classical musical numbers, including some of their own arrangements, alongside visiting troupes like the North County Children’s Choir, the Jewish Men’s Choir, JumpStart3, the Timbre Handbell Ensemble, along with featured solists Mary Jaeb, John Polhamus, Ric Henry, Alexis Alfaro, and Ken Bell.
And a piano playing cat!
It truly was an unforgettable night for a truly great cause. Interfaith wishes to thank all the performers listed above as well as the dozens of non-musician volunteers who worked to make the night so fun and successful. We look forward to the next concert!
