The 23rd annual Evening of Sacred Song is taking place December 1st in Ann Arbor, benefiting the Washtenaw County Poor People's Campaign. 89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry talked with Lisa Bashert and Ayron Smith-Douglas about the concert giving voice to social change, environmental justice, and peace.
The Evening of Sacred Song was founded as a benefit for activist Elise Bryant, who co-founded the Common Ground Theatre. Since then, it has evolved into an alternative to the traditional holiday concerts.
The concert features music from numerous styles and cultures. Such performances have included a capella, full band performances, and dance.
The event takes December 1st at 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ann Arbor. All residents are welcome to attend.
