One Voice Mixed Chorus Presents Sanctuary, Exploring the Music of Minnesota’s Immigrant Communities

Where: Hoversten Chapel at Augsburg

When: Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 9:45-10-45AM

One Voice Mixed Chorus presents Sanctuary, a concert that explores the music of immigrant cultures to Minnesota- from early Scandinavians, to African Americans arriving through the Underground Railroad, and recent music of Hmong, Mexican and Somali communities. Several contemporary songs describe the experience of LGBT people struggling for a place of belonging and finding home through both biological and chosen family.

This concert is a collaboration with local non-profit, Green Card Voices, which has collected stories of youth immigrants.

One Voice’s OUT in Our Schools program will offer workshops in schools utilizing a curriculum designed by Green Card Voices. Paired with music from the Sanctuary concert, OUT in Our Schools engages students in researching and writing about their own immigrant history, including stories and music that comes from their cultural background.

One Voice will perform for middle-school students and the Augsburg community on Thursday, January 11 at Augsburg University in Minneapolis
