Dr. Jerry McCoy began his Artistic Leadership of Schola Cantorum of Texas/Fort Worth Chorale in 2008 with a concert titled, Lest We Forget. Fort Worth Chorale will bring the past 10 years full circle, celebrating not only the choir's 55th season but also Dr. McCoy's 10th season.

The concert will offer poetic thought and music that remembers those who have suffered and died for the cause of "liberty and justice for all," featuring Ivo Antognini's "Invictus" dedicated to Nelson Mandela, and Bob Chilcott's arrangement of MLK.

The Chorale will also sing of America's gift of love to refugees of our time with the performance of Jake Runestad's powerfully moving "We Can Mend the Sky," built upon two Somali proverbs and a poem by 14-year old Somali refugee Laura Mohamed. The centerpiece of the concert will be Randall Thompson's timeless "The Testament of Freedom," a 20-minute work based upon the words of Thomas Jefferson. The last thought of the season will be Craig Hella Johnson's "All of Us," a joyous, inspiring piece about how we strive to be the people of the American dream, "e pluribus unum" - "out of many, one."
