Description

Delaware composer Wilson Gault Somers was hailed for his exciting new ensemble version of Requiem for 9/11 last fall. Now, Music With A Mission, Inc. is proud to present “A Concert for Ukraine” that will feature several movements from an exciting new ensemble version of Somers’ original master work, “Mass for the Homeless.” The concert will premiere at 4:00 PM on Sunday, October 23, 2022 at St. Helena’s Roman Catholic Church. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Like Americans everywhere, Maestro Somers and the MWAM leadership have been both appalled and inspired by the happenings in the war in Ukraine. They recognize that the effects of the war and resulting need will extend for years into the future. Mr. Somers also notes that thousands have been left homeless as a result of the war. This work seeks to left them as it does homeless and downtrodden everywhere. All net proceeds will benefit The Center for Disaster Philanthropy Ukrainian Humanitarian Crisis Recovery Fund, which provides funding that has a direct and significant impact in meeting the ongoing and ever-expanding humanitarian challenges from the conflict in Ukraine.
