“The Star of Bethlehem was a very public and visible announcement of an amazing event”, explains Mosely, the Choir’s Artistic Director. “It also served as a point of reference for three wise sojourners or Magi to guide them to that event. In the late 1800s, another star served as a guide – in this case, Harriet Tubman (a woman they called, Moses), guided by the North Star led 300 souls to freedom in Canada.”
“These are troubled times. The star inspires hope, offers light in the darkness, and is a call for the heart to look up and find inspiration. It’s a symbol that is not only relevant at this time of year, but a reminder that we can choose to follow a pathway of compassion and love”.
