Got Art?

Rock of Ages

Approximately 60 performers, including 45 from outside organizations, participated in the Barry University Interfaith Concert on March 20. The program featured a children's Christian dance ensemble, a Christian dancer/performer/mime, a black gospel choir, a traditional Jewish cantor, a Catholic children's choir, and Barry student dancers and singers. Co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry and the Department of Fine Arts, the concert attracted a capacity audience of more than 200 guests to the Cor Jesu Chapel.

"My inspiration came from the cumulative experiences I have had producing interfaith concerts on a much larger scale at Temple Israel of Greater and Miami, and in collaboration with Trinity Cathedral in downtown Miami," said Associate Professor of Music Dr. Alan Mason, one of the co-directors of the program along with Dr. Giselle Rios, assistant professor of music, and Sister Mary Fran Fleischaker of the Office of Mission and Ministry.
