 2017 Arts & Faith St. Louis Interfaith Concert: "Building Bridges"

September 10, 2017  The Sheldon Concert Hall

The Concert: Young performers, Julia Bullock, 442s, "Love is Love" by Adam Manass

This year's concert featured young singers and musicians from faith communities and schools across the metro area. Also performing was the young opera star, Julia Bullock, and the 442s, an ensemble with members of the St. Louis Symphony.  Julia Bullock sang a new composition by Adam Maness, a member of the 442s, commissioned for the concert.

"Interfaith Journeys for Teens" Video Project

The audience also experienced a video, "Interfaith Journeys for Teens", that traced interactive, interfaith experiences of teens here in St. Louis working to build bridges of understanding.  Teens of different faiths first came together as part of the Arts & Faith St. Louis March 2017 presentation of "The Cave" a theatrical work that explored the common roots of the three Abrahamic faiths -- Judaism, Islam and Christianity. 

Post-Event Outside 

Immediately following the concert, performers and audience members mingled and continued their interfaith journeys out in front of The Sheldon where displays of interactive activities related to "Interfaith Journeys for Teens" were set up in the closed street.  Each display allowed more in-depth views of each teen activity as seen in the video during the concert.
