Music Director Alejandro Zuleta and Choir Leader Cristina Maria Castro at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph in Prospect Heights believe that music is the best medicine to bring parishioners back to the pews following the Covid pandemic.
Much like Thanksgiving, Easter does not have hundreds of songs to help commemorate the holiday. While there’s no “White Christmas” or “Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” there is “Easter Parade” and “Here Comes Peter Cottontail,” along with dozens of sacred songs that celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord.
The thematic arc of “A Concert for Healing” allows viewers of this online performance to experience Christ’s power of redemption, said its organizers at St. Pancras Church, Glendale, Queens. It was videotaped and produced at the church to help its members mend from a tumultuous year for their parish.
