Seattle Peace Chorus presents "People of the Drum"

Saturday, November 23, 2019, 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM


The Seattle Peace Chorus is proud to present our up-coming concerts, People of the Drum, in honor of Native Americans and their contributions to our nation, community, and environment. We wish to express our solidarity with them and with their struggle for identity and cultural preservation. Our concert program represents a collaboration with our Native American communities and features music composed by Frederick N. West, the director of the Seattle Peace Chorus. Native American singers, drummers, story tellers, and tribal elders will be an integral part of our concert. Native American tribes in the United States have struggled for years to uphold treaties that protect their rights to fishing, hunting, and preservation of their sacred grounds. This work will include poetic renderings of these and other legacies, including the Navajo prayer Beauty before us, beauty behind us, we walk in beauty; it is finished in beauty. We present this at two Native American sites in Seattle with limited seating: Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center, and the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center.

Cost: 23 - 25 USD
