"Spring, Rebirth, and Renewal" was an interfaith arts event that happened at the Ridgeville Community House in Evanston. It was a dynamic event, with readings from sacred texts as well as poetry readings, and musical performances.

 
The "Harmonies of Faith" North Shore Interfaith Choral Concert happened in Evanston this afternoon; two magnificent choirs performed -- The Campanella Children's Choir and North Shore Interfaith Choir.
