This Shining Night, Choral Concert Benefiting Dragonheart VT

Choral Music and Dragon Boating: A benefit concert in support of breast cancer survivors
BURLINGTON, VT. — Saturday, February 8th, Solaris Vocal Ensemble will gather for another of their compelling performances at the College Street Congregational Church in Burlington. Solaris is dedicated to performing a wide variety of choral literature for their audiences, and that’s not all. Part of their mission is to support their local community.
Their upcoming performance, This Shining Night 2020, will be a benefit concert for another local non-profit organization, Dragonheart, VT, and specifically, Dragonheart Vermont’s Sisters At Heart Day. Happening a day before the Lake Champlain Dragonboat Festival; Sisters At Heart Day focuses on celebrating women who have survived breast cancer, and their supporters. It’s a day the community gathers with open arms to offer ways for the Sisters to connect with one another through learning new skills, building each other up, and having fun while working hard.
While Vocal Ensembles and Dragon Boating may seem two opposite ends of a spectrum, at the core are two modes of connecting with one another, supporting each other through a journey, and having a passion to share with your community. Solaris Vocal Ensemble and Dragonheart VT may not be that different. Both have missions to give back to their local community and within them have shared passions for connecting and supporting their members through either music or paddling.
