The Sounds of CommUNITY Concert, scheduled to be held online at 4 p.m. Nov. 15, has released its program for the 30th performance.

The concert, "Musical Mosaic of Hope," is sponsored by the Interfaith Federation of Greater Baton Rouge.

This concert series was established in 1991 by the late Rev. Charles T. Smith, pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, who will be honored during the performance. As president of the Federation, Smith believed music has the power to bring unity to a community. More than 90 choirs and groups have participated in the concert over the years.

This year’s virtual concert includes Broadmoor United Methodist Church; Congregation B’nai Israel; Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church; St. Joseph Cathedral; University Presbyterian Church; Waging Peace Community Choir (video recording from World Premiere Concert in 2013); tributes by Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, the Rev. Jeff Day, the Rev. Fred Jeff Smith and Everrett Parker.

The concert also will include two original songs written for the Interfaith Federation.
