Chapel of the Incarnate Word Caritas Concert
Sunday, April 23, 2023 at 4:00 pm
Chapel of the Incarnate Word
The Caritas Concert Series, established by Mary Ann Winden, presents student, semi-professional, and professional organists in a variety of programs, including ones where the organ will partner with choral ensembles, displaying the broad and innovative use of the organ.
Why “caritas”? The Latin word “caritas” means charity, or love, or specifically, the outpouring of love in charitable works. All programs in the Caritas Concerts Series will be free and open to the public in order to give everyone the opportunity to experience organ and choir performances of the highest caliber: an outpouring of love through a charitable act.
This concert will feature CCSA singers ranging in age from 9-18, performing in the Chorale, Choristers, Chamber, and Encore ensembles.

We begin with a message of hope, beauty, and concern for our precious planet. When Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg addressed the United Nations in September of 2019 she shocked the world with her impassioned declaration to the world’s leaders – “How dare you?”. These words have been set for choir by Wisconsin-born composer, and Texas high school teacher Andrew Steffen. SACC will offer the world premiere of this moving work in The Deep, Deep Earth. We will also offer uplifting movements from the Missa Gaia / Earth Mass by Paul Winter and Paul Halley which includes the sounds of wolf, whale, and seals. The “Dean of American Composers”, Aaron Copland is also featured with his finest a cappella work, In the Beginning, featuring Crystal Jarrell Johnson, mezzo-soprano.
