The U-Church season at Lee University will kick off this spring
with a live performance by The City Harmonic on Sunday, Jan. 27, at
7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center.
In partnership with the Lee University Food Bank, all attendees
are asked to please bring a canned food item for students and
others in need in the community.
The award-winning Canadian band, which uses its gift for rock
and Brit-pop music to spread the word of the Gospels, is just
ending its "I Have a Dream" tour. After five months on the road,
touring America and sharing its vision of Christ-inspired hope, The
City Harmonic's unique blend of popular music and particular
reverence is growing ever more popular.
"If Coldplay sang the Lord's Prayer or added a worship set to
its stadium tour, this is what it would sound like," says
Christianity Today. "The City Harmonic's lyrics are a cut
above some other worship bands following the same trend."
The band has been earning attention since 2010 when they
self-released six of their songs, including the popular
"Manifesto." They were noted as the New Artists of the Year at the
2011 Covenant Awards in Alberta, receiving two other awards for
their music. The release of their album, "I Have A Dream (It Feels
Like Home)" inspired their recent American tour where they helped
to communicate what they call the "Christian dream."
"Both art and worship are participatory acts-not consumptive
acts," says the band's frontman Elias Dummer. "What is meaningful
for people is the experience, that creative moment when art is
shared. To us, it's almost as though these songs just don't sound
right without everybody involved."
