On Sunday this week, I attended (and did sound for) the Evangelion Chorale's 2005 Bon Voyage concert. For those who don't know, Evangelion is a semi-professional choir started in 1998 by Dennis Port, director of the Bethel Choir. Since then, it has travelled regularly to Ukraine with a mission to expose the arts community there to high-quality sacred music and to enforce the fact that christian beliefs and good art indeed can co-exist. Evangelion featured in a Star Tribune article last week, which you can read about here.
Anyway, the concert was excellent, and it really made me sad that I'm not going along with them this year. Perhaps I'll be able to go on the 2007 tour.
