Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra with the Bahá’í Choir

The  Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra returns to the Bahá’í House of Worship for its 3rd concert collaboration with the Bahá’í House of Worship Choir and Music Director Van Gilmer.

Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of the Báb.

In 1844, in Shiraz, the Bab declared that he had been called by God to be humanity’s gateway to a new and glorious future. The Bab was an advocate of the poor. He supported the advancement of women, universal education and the study of science–radical ideas in that time and place.

He called for the people to prepare for the coming of another Divine Messenger who would soon appear and initiate an era of global justice, unity and peace. He sacrificed His life for the Cause of God and paved the way for the coming of Baha’u’llah, the Glory of God.

This concert honors the Bab’s life and teachings, with some of His most powerful writings set to music.

Orchestral Program:
Hovhaness — Psalm and Fugue
Part — Da pacem Domine
Haydn — Selections from Seven Last Words of Christ

And spiritual vocal music including:
Gol Allah
O God my God

Queen of Carmel

O thou compassionate

Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 7 PM – 8:30 PM
