The Taylor Festival Choir from Charleston presented a free concert of classical choir music dedicated to those who are currently fighting or lost their battle with cancer. 

The concert was held April 1 in St. Helena Episcopal Church.

According to a press release from the church, the Taylor Festival Choir is a professional chamber choir based in Charleston. Founded and conducted by Robert Taylor, the choir is inspired by the life and career of Bob Taylor, the conductor’s late father and a noted choral musician and pedagogue. 

Since its inception in 2001, the Taylor Festival Choir has toured and been heard in venues and festivals throughout the U.S. It was one of only two American adult chamber choirs featured at the 2009 American Choral Directors Association National Convention and 50th anniversary celebration.
