Sahara Peace Choir to sing 2.24.13




The Sahara Peace Choir, with Annelinde Metzner standing middle in black top. (I'm in front with shawl wrapped around my shoulders) Linda is our leader, and for our next concert has written all the songs we will be singing.

In Black Mountain on Sunday, February 24 at 7:30 pm this women's choir will present

 "Lady of Ten Thousand Names" 
at The White Horse, a concert venue with refreshments.  

Poetry, two lovely dancers, and a solo performance by Stephanie Heidemann will round out the program.  

Sahara is a name chosen to blend the names of two matriarchs of ancient religious, Sarah and Hagar, who gave birth to Abraham's two sons.  This choir sings several times a year to raise funds for women's non-profits.

I'm sharing this with Sepia Saturday (here) because it's 1) a posed photograph and 2) a company of strangers who have come together (here for singing).  Check out other photographs (mostly vintage) and great stories at that meme.

And come hear the concert if you're in town!

  2. Being in a choir is a great way to share a love of singing. Good luck with your next performance but I doubt you will need any.

  7. My kind of social activity! Music and poetry, what fun! "Lady of Ten Thousand Names" - that's quite interesting. And it's good to be reminded of biblical names, Sarah, Hagar and Abraham.

  14. A musical group with hidden instruments. I need to look out for more of these unknown singing ensembles. I can't get there this Sunday but will watch for Asheville performances. Enjoy the music.

  15. So good to hear from the great Sepians today! And Mike B...Don't know about hidden instruments, we'll have a baby grand on stage, as well as flute, drum and guitar!

  16. Good luck to the ladies in the choir. I, too, am in not one, but two choirs. One with a Folkchoir at a Roman Catholic church on Saturday evenings, and the other a Senior choir at a United Church. Lots of varieties of songs/hymns. Our new organist/director at the United church comes from a Baptist church, like I said, lots of varietes!!!! Wish I could attend, seems I am always stuck in a snow storm lately.....

  19. You are such great blog-friends. Thank you for your good wishes!
    The concert was fabulous, but poor competition to Oscars. What's wrong with folks that could have seen a live performance rather than the canned celebration of awards (and some good jokes) about the movie industry? Well, they missed the one and only performance of these 15 or so songs, including poetry, dance and some solos. I was so thrilled I'll blog about it!
