Highlights of the gathering will be the â€œSinging Quakersâ€ of Friends University, the â€œBel Canto Choirâ€ from Hesston College, and the â€œTroubadoursâ€ of Newman University. In addition, internationally acclaimed Baritone Soloist Anthony Brown, Jakub Omsky, Principal Cellist of the Wichita Symphony and Wichita State University Hindu Dancers will help us remember through their performances how our nation and world has struggled to find meaning and hope.
