“Voices Rising” with guest Bruce Cockburn — Online Benefit Concert for Mozambique

Saturday, June 19, 2021, at 7:00pm

directed by: Cathy Baker and Dick Jackson

with special guests: Bruce Cockburn, as well as musicians from Mozambique

The Gettin’ Higher Choir is delighted to announce that their next online benefit concert will take place June 19 at 7pm PDT, and will feature renowned songwriter, guitarist, compassionate humanitarian and activist, Bruce Cockburn. Also, for the first time, we will welcome collaboration with musicians from the Caia district of Mozambique, for this our 23rd annual concert to support development projects in that region.

The event will feature recorded messages and musical performances by guest artists. The GHC will present “virtual choir” videos of songs celebrating our vital bonds to one another, near and far, and to the earth we share. This season’s uplifting songs come from South Africa, from classic rock, and from current songwriters including local star, Chris Frye of The Bills.
