All is fair in love and war…or is it? Our 30th anniversary season comes to a blockbuster close with a concert mashup that puts gospel, classical, and a nonconformist marching band in one epic program that turns the love-themed concert on its head. From romance to spirituality and passion to battle, emotions will run high from start to epic finish as we team up with Apostolic Church of God Sanctuary Choir to blow the roof off in the first half and then stage the ultimate “battle of the bands” rematch against our friends at Mucca Pazza to the tune of Prokoviev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite in the second half. Go Big or Go Home...right?
