Join Grebel Alumni & Friends at the biggest celebration UW has ever hosted!
Geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists study islands as unique environmental and cultural systems. This term we will study and present some of the world’s most unique music from island cultures around the world. We will be performing musics from well-known Island cultures such as Hawaii, New Zealand, and Jamaica while exploring lesser-known musics from isles of Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, and North America. The final concert will also feature dance and images.
This summer, a celebration of hymnody will collide with the 500th anniversary of the reformation at “Now Thank We All Our God: Celebrating Congregational Song since the Reformation.” The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada encourages, promotes, and enlivens congregational singing as an integral component of worship. The group will hold its annual conference at Grebel this summer, July 16-20, drawing hundreds of hymn aficionados.
Four different chamber trios will perform a wide selection of classical music pieces. The musicians are gifted students, so this is a delightful way to spend a Sunday evening. There will be two string trios, one woodwind, and one mixed. Free Admission, with a reception to follow.
