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!
