Event description

Description

The entire community is invited to the 22nd Annual Evening of Sacred Song on December 2, 2017. Sacred Song is a secular multi-ethnic group of performers that gives voice to social change, environmental justice, and to peace.

As in all previous years, concert proceeds will be donated to a local not-for-profit social justice effort. The 2017 beneficiary is Washtenaw Congregational Sanctuary (WCS), an interfaith coalition of congregations and unaffiliated individuals throughout Washtenaw County who have joined together to support immigrants and their families in our community. The purpose of the contribution is to support local congregations in providing refuge.

Sacred Song performs both a cappella and accompanied by an ensemble of some of the area’s strongest talents on guitar, bass, keyboard, and percussion.

The 2017 concert will feature local favorites Faye Askew-King, Cassandra Compton-Montgomery, Deborah Greene, D. Yarrow Halstead, Gwynne Jennings, Cathy Keresztesi-Stevens, Laura Machida, Nancy Kerner, Jeff Pickell, La’Ron Williams, and Robin Wilson. Also featured are guest artists Rhonda Bantsimba, Sam Clark, and Mary Anne Perrone. Consummate musician and performer Brian Buckner returns as 2017 Musical Director.

“We feel honored to share the music and energy of our annual concerts with the community. We are equally excited to partner with and donate proceeds to our 2017 beneficiary, Washtenaw Congregational Sanctuary,” says D. Yarrow Halstead, a Sacred Song founding member.

“Sacred Song is always an empowering, moving, and enjoyable experience. Performing, singing and laughing together,” says Halstead, “creates a matrix of love by which we feel nourished, supported and encouraged to speak up, sing out, and standup.”

Suggested Donation: $15 (before Dec 1) to $20; Children under 12 admitted free

No one is turned away from the door due to inability to pay.
