The South Puget Sound Community College Concert Choir will team up with the Puget Sound Community Choir to kick off its season, as well as start to set the holiday mood with “Sing We Clear,” coming to the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts on Wednesday, Dec. 1.
Led by director Molly McNamara and piano accompanist Jennifer Herman, the choirs will also be joined by musicians from the Olympia Chamber Orchestra. This year’s title, “Sing We Clear,” is a lyric from an old English carol, “Masters in this Hall,” just one of many seasonal songs the choirs will perform.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 1 at the Minnaert Center Main Stage. Tickets are $7.50 for adults, and $5 for seniors and students. All tickets are subject to a $2.50 service charge. Tickets can be purchased online at OlyTix.org, or by calling the Minnaert Center box office at (360) 753-8586.
I`ve become enamored with the mythology and historical context of what music once was within older cultures. As my experience is very limited to this industrial version that I`ve come to know and fear. My experience has been widely cultured by a limited amount of approved albums that made it through the pasturization process. It seems before filtration and domination became an economy fueled marketing goal that music was well known as the applied priveledge of observation, insight, and "free" time. As well its the application of skills and the science of vibrato.
It makes sense that something coming from the combination of so many valued resources would become commodified and bridaled by a market controlled cultuer.
It makes sharing somewhat scary.
However i love to play music, in wide open spaces, in echoing spaces, or near the water. What makes it easy to share the music I write or play is too remind myself that nothing is mine, its not mine to protect or hoard but instead it is a combination of every thing that has been shared with me in the past, However those vibrations reached me they were someones, or from stereo recordings that have become the fabric of my own voice and music i play today, And to not share those gifts that were given to me would be awful,
You are invited to join in the Dances of Universal Peace!
A Time to Plant: Dances for the Vernal Equinox will take place on Sunday, March 21, 7 - 8:30 pm, at the United Churches of Olympia, downstairs in the Social Hall. 110 11th Ave SE, Olympia; Corner of 11th & Washington.

About the Dances: From the beginning of time, sacred movement, song and story have brought people together - at times of seasonal ceremony and celebration, as part of everyday life and life passages, in daily renewal and meditation. The Dances of Universal Peace are part of this timeless tradition of sacred movement, song, and story.
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple, meditative, joyous, multi-cultural circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants, music, and movements from the many spiritual traditions of the earth to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and recognize it in others. Building on the work begun by Samuel L. Lewis in the 1960s, they promote peace and integration within individuals and understanding and connection within groups worldwide. All dances and songs are taught to the group. There are neither performers nor audience: new arrivals and old hands form the circle as everyone sings and dances together.
Since their beginning, the Dances have spread throughout the world, with about 200 circles meeting weekly or monthly in North America alone. Learn more at www.peaceworksdancesna.org.
The next Dances of Universal Peace in Olympia will take place on Sunday, April 18, 7 - 8:30 pm, at the same location.
