Spring Concert—I’ll Make Me a World
Sunday, April 19, 3 p.m.
The Church of the Holy Trinity, 1904 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA
A collaborative concert bringing Singing City together again with Lyric Fest for a musically eclectic, thought-provoking look at our world.

Solo songs interspersed with choral works, including a new work by Lyric Fest’s composer in residence, Kile Smith, scored for audience participation.
With Randall Scarlata, baritone; Elizabeth Weigle, soprano; and Chrystal Williams, mezzo-soprano; Laura Ward, piano;
and percussion ensemble.
Reception follows in Centennial Hall.
