Clefolution has performed at a number of events up to date but, this will be the first of our own. We want this, our first, to be an offering to our Maker. The Sacred Chord is known to please the Lord and with the many chords we will perform we hope to make Him proud and showcase our love for bringing such chords to life.

Our repertoire for this concert includes works/arrangements by Christopher Tin (Baba Yetu), Ryan Main (Dies Irae), Ralph Vaughan Williams (Let all the World in Every Corner Sing), Craig Courtney (Our Father, There will I be), Ola Gjeilo (Prelude), Darlene Zschech (Shout to the Lord), and our very own Shehan Wijemanne (Sweet Heart of Jesus, Gentle Woman). The program was selected to glorify, offer thanks and praise to our Maker as well as to impart hope. We are also performing a few secular offerings because we think God has a sense of humor and will enjoy them: works/arrangements by Anders Edenroth (Bumblebee), Carl Orff (O Fortuna…with a twist) and Queen (Somebody to Love).

The Organisation we are supporting in bringing awareness, and giving our proceeds to, in this concert is Shanthi Maargam. It is a registered NGO in Sri Lanka that seeks to reduce violence in communities by healing the emotional traumas of at-risk adolescents and youth. Shanthi Maargam means “Pathways to peace” in both Sinhala and Tamil. The name signifies the need to help children and youth heal from traumas they may have experienced or witnessed. Shanthi Maargam creates safe spaces and opportunities. They provide the youth and children in question with the skills to manage their emotions; find a deeper level of peace in order to break the cycle of violence in families and the perpetration of violence in their communities.
