Combat Flip Flops: In & Out of Battle

3:00pm & 7:30pm, November 13, 2021

1207 Ellsworth St, Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship

This high-energy program marking Veterans Day reframes the age-old imperative to beat swords into plowshares with a modern example of replacing combat boots with casual footwear. Venture with the choir into and out of battle with pieces honoring veterans (Hogans Battle of Jericho, a setting of Kiplings Boots), pondering war and peace (Gabriels Oboe from The Mission, and Nichols electrifying Chalk Circle Songs), and exuding joy (Blue Suede Shoes, Paul Simons Diamonds on The Soles of Her Shoes).
