Tigerville SC (December 15, 2014) As an extension of last year’s Year of Altruism, the NGU Orchestra will present “Heroes – Music for those who gave that we might live” on Tuesday, October 28 at 7pm in Turner Chapel.

The orchestra and the NGU Singers will conclude the concert by glorifying the One who gave all that we might come to know Him, that we might accept His sacrificial gift of dying in our place so we might live. 

On the program: Verdi's Overture to Nabucco, Farrar's Heroic Elegy, Williams' Three Pieces from Schindler’s List with Dr. Leslie Warlick, solo violin, Ippolitov-Ivanov's Caucasian Sketches, and Anderson/Habegger/Forrest'sHis Robes for Mine.
