The Everett Chorale will present its second concert of the season at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 7, at the Everett Performing Arts Center.

Let There Be Peace is meant to be an inspiring and heartfelt performance, under the direction of Lee Mathews.

The program is filled with songs promoting love, peace and harmony, including “Make Me An Instrument Of Thy Peace,” “Deep Peace,” “In Harmony”, “I Dream A World,” “Earth Song,” “Let There Be Peace,” and Johannes Brahms’ “Liebeslieder Waltzer,” with four-hand accompaniment on the piano.

The audience will even have the opportunity to join the chorale in a sing-along to one of these favorite and well-known tunes.

John Jorgenson will join Kim Croft at the piano, and four soloists will be featured in some love song waltzes. The soloists are: Lori DeAnn Williams (Soprano), Shauna Croft (Alto), Jon Cummings (Tenor) and Steve Torrence (Bass).

The chorale will also present a medley of inspirational songs with some in different languages. African songs include “Bonse Aba,” a traditional Zambian song, “Amani”, which is Swahili for ‘peace’ and “Children of Peace” (‘suluhisha, suluhiana,’ which means ‘make peace with each other’).

“Al Shlosha D’varim” and “Ose Shalom” are inspiring Hebrew songs encouraging truth, justice and peace.

In its 47th season, the Everett Chorale continues to provide choral music performances for the cultural growth and entertainment of singers and audiences throughout Snohomish County and surrounding areas.

Ticket are $16 for adults or $14 for seniors, students and military. Special discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.

The Everett Performing Arts Center is at 2710 Wetmore Ave. in downtown Everett.
