Description:Exultation! Twenty Years of Burning Bright

Burning Bright, a group of Decorah-area professional and amateur musicians, offer their annual benefit concerts. Kathy Reed and Otter Dreaming co-direct the event. Along with the adult choir, the concert will feature children and youth choirs, other small vocal ensembles, and various instruments, both as accompaniment and as stand-alone groups, including fiddle, guitar, recorder, banjo, piano, bodhrán, and other percussion. 

Each year the musicians donate concert proceeds to various nonprofit organizations. This year's beneficiaries include the Farmers' Market Coupon Program for clients of the Decorah Community Food PantryNeighbors Helping Neighbors, a local effort to assist immigrants and their families; Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center's Immigration Working Group, which provides legal consultation for immigrants; Re-Member, which works with the Oglala Lakota Nation on the Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota, to improve the quality of reservation life; and New Hope Jeremiah Project, which focuses on programs for children and feeds hundreds of members of its Cape Town, South Africa, community. 

Tickets for both performances are now on sale at the Oneota Community Co-op (415 W. Water St.). Tickets, if available, may also be purchased at the door; but advance purchase is recommended since performances are often sold out.
