The Evening of Sacred Song was founded as a benefit for activist Elise Bryant, who co-founded the Common Ground Theatre.  Since then, it has evolved into an alternative to the traditional holiday concerts.  

The concert features music from numerous styles and cultures.  Such performances have included a capella, full band performances, and dance.

The event takes December 1st at 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ann Arbor.  All residents are welcome to attend.
