The Sunflower Theatre will present the ARISE Choir at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 23 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church at 212 E. Division in Peabody. The concert and following reception are by donation to the Sunflower Theatre Theatre.

African Americans Renewing Interest in Spirituals Ensemble, Incorporated (ARISE) is made up of voices in Kansas who are dedicated to the uplifting, sharing history and inspiring peace through song and storytelling. Their work aims to educate people of all cultures about the significance of spirituals, from the Underground Railroad to the Civil Rights Movement.

ARISE has been invited to provide their special style of musical tribute for the National Memorial Day Choral Festival in Washington, DC. The program salutes America’s Military and Fallen Heroes. We couldn’t be more pleased to help support their mission.

The concert is partially sponsored by a grant from the Peabody Community Foundation.
