What a rich and amazing musical evening we had last night with the Village Harmony [].....both vocal workshop and concert performance. Here is a short clip of Mollie Stone teaching the World House Choir the South African traditional song, "Ndandihleli." We will be perfecting this and adding it to our repertoire.
We will NOT give up the fight.

After a long time being a "groupie" I finally was able to clear my schedule and make the commitment to singing with this marvelous group! Tonight was my first time at rehearsal and I had so much fun. ...This is, at long last, the local embodiment of my One Human Family Workshops music, vision, and mission. I am a happy & joyful being!

This group is such a treasure in our community. Each performance I have seen has been inspirational and uplifting. And, Creator knows, such work is so very needed given where our country now finds its...elf. Thank you to each of you for your art, your commitment to social justice and the gift of your talents.

The World House Choir joins the Yellow Springs Community to celebrate the courage, tenacity and activism of Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday January 15 at the John Bryan Community Center, 100 Dayton Street in Yellow Springs at 11 AM.

The Yellow Springs MLK Day organizing committee in choosing to call this year’s program “The Courage to Take a Stand” summons us to wake up, find our voice and stand up/show up for our democracy and for the least of us.

As part of the day’s pr...ogram, the World House Choir will sing an arrangement of the beloved African-American spiritual, "Oh, Freedom." We’ll also perform Roland Carter’s setting of the anthem, "Lift Every Voice and Sing" composed in 1900 by brothers J. Rosemond and James Weldon Johnson. The Carter arrangement is by turns majestic, thoughtful and dramatic with dynamic tempo changes and rich harmonies. We will ask the audience to stand and sing the first verse along with us.

Tenor soloist Christopher G. Smith joins the World House to sing "City Called Heaven," a gospel hymn. And much to our delight, we welcome our Police Chief, Brian Carlson to join us by singing the solo in the rousing, "I’ll Make the Difference."

I have the late Cheryl Welch — friend, former Ass...
