Eastminster United Church
310 Danforth (at Jackman)

“Missa Gaia” is a contemporary ecumenical and ecological mass in celebration of Mother Earth.  This dynamic choral work sets traditional mass and biblical texts to lyrical melodies with vibrant rhythms from African, Brazilian and American gospel traditions and interweaves the voices of wolf, whale and harp seals.

One performance only — in the sanctuary of Eastminster United Church.  The work features the Eastminster choir and guests under the musical direction of Jacqueline Sadler.

Admission is by donation with all proceeds going to Eastminster Goes Green.  Eastminster Goes Green is a fund dedicated to special environment conscious initiatives that help the church to reduce its carbon footprint.
