At this public event, Jane Ramseyer Miller, Artistic Director of One Voice Mixed Chorus, Minnesota’s GLBTA chorus and Artistic Director for GALA Choruses, will lead us in singing and reflection. She will inspire us to give thanks for the gift of water that is fundamental for all of life, and will challenge us to commit to the fair and just care of water for all people. Opening and welcome by Blue Sky Singers, a group of First Nations singers.
Harpist Lori Gemmell and tenor James McLean will perform a selection of classical music. This concert features French songs by Debussy, Faure and Tournier, British Folk songs by Benjamin Britten, and Glen Buhr's setting of Tolkien's epic Tale of Tinuviel.
Four members of the KW Symphony will play Debussy's First String Quartet, in G minor, Op. 10.
Don't let the formal title of this extraordinary work fool you! Debussy's First String Quartet is anything but formal. Its fleeting mood, ravishing grandeur, and subtlety of timbre eclipse the rigours of traditional form. Follow that with the fun of William Bolcom's Ghost Rags and you'll find a classical road map to jazz. Join friends from the KW Symphony in this performance of music that enlivens and inspires.
The KW Woodwind Quintet has chosen a program of delightful music by French composers to showcase the "jolie vent" that wind instruments create. The concert will include Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin, Debussy's Children's Corner, Bozza's Scherzo, and Bizet's Carmen Fantasie. Bienvenue à notre concert!
Join the Grebel community for a special "Fill the Table" capital campaign launch event.

Come explore the intersections between spirituality and narrative, and between narrative and aging, focusing on both the unique developmental tasks of later life, and the challenges aging poses to our stories.
