Tacoma Refugee Choir
When we are having a bad day, one of the simplest and yet most powerful ways of modulating our mood is to turn on some music and sing along.  Music has the power to uplift and motivate us through hard times, inspire us to be better people and unite us in a common purpose.  This is the idea behind the Tacoma Refugee Choir, a unique new ensemble that aims to create a more welcoming community through singing together.  In this time in history when fear dominates the headlines, singing can be a powerful tool for replacing hatred and xenophobia with hope and unity and heal some of the divisiveness that plagues our society.  Of course, we couldn’t talk about music without some singing.  This fun and high energy presentation will emphasize why music matters and how it can play a role in fostering meaningful relationships that heal and strengthen our communities.
