Ten years ago, two women had a dream about community and the ways they could give back to the one in which they lived.

Their dream gave blossom to the Delta Community Choir, an ensemble that gives free performances and over the past decade has raised $36,000 for community organizations.

To celebrate what they have achieved, they commissioned two new songs that lift up their mission in music. These two songs, created out of a collaboration between composer and choir co-founder Debora DeWitt and lyricist and poet Marianne Peel, will have their premiere performance at a May 7 concert.

“With You There is Music” will be 3 p.m. at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 7910 E. St. Joseph Highway in Delta Township.
