NMGC Voices of Hope!
We have been proud to present a wonderful series of collaborative concerts bi-annually since 2013, inviting singers who have been impacted by cancer to join us in song. Music links to your soul and inspires a joyful and healthful energy that can lift spirits and restore a sustaining sense of community.
In 2017, our third in this series of concerts, we were delighted to have close to 100 singers joined together in song for the uplifting benefits of music for those touched by cancer – NMGC Voices of Hope 2017! Whether as a patient, survivor, family member, care giver, or medical professional, music can create or strengthen bonds of family, friends, or associates and enable joy to break through anxieties, pain, uncertainty. Check out our links below to Voice of Hope gatherings and concerts of 2013 and 2015. These were heartwarming, joyful, and powerfully uplifting experiences for participants and audience alike.
The power of song for healing and inspiring hope is harnessed in this mixed chorus
of local residents touched by cancer.
In recognition of the uplifting power of music and the wonderful support of the Naperville community, The Naperville Men’s Glee Club has again engaged adult singers impacted by cancer to participate in their 2015 community service project “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015“. Over 120 musicians joined together in song on Sunday, April 26, 2015 to a full house at Wentz Concert Hall at North Central College, Naperville. in an afternoon of heartfelt and powerfully inspirational music. A DVD of the show is available from NCTV Channel 17 for $10 (click here to go to their order page).
