This timeless story of a man figuring out who he is will help us look at our own lives to find our purpose and discover that we can trust God to help us across our own particular Red Sea.
A 60-voice choir and an 11-piece orchestra will perform this Christian rock musical in concert style.
This production features the combined choirs of St. Joseph’s Church from Vancouver, Washington, and Holy Rosary Church of Edmonds.
Maria Manzo, St. Joseph’s Music Minister, will conduct the orchestra and choir. Music and lyrics are by William Gokelman and David Kauffman.
Moses, the questioning, unsure, often confused and unwilling leader, is the focus of the musical “Moses and the burning within.”
It is the story of a man who knows that his life is not going as it should; that somewhere there is a purpose for him and a mission that he must find and then fulfill. In that sense, “Moses and the burning within” is a universal story which should cause each of us to scrutinize our lives to find our own mission.
“We’ve watched choirs build community, live Scripture, and have a blast, ever since we started ‘work- shopping’, the musical three years ago,” said David Kauffman, co-writer and founder of Good For the Soul Music. “Now that it’s out, our prayer is for choir, cast, crew and audience to find themselves in the story of Moses and ask ‘what’s burning within my soul?’”
