Subject: RE: MANY VOICES with Pete Seeger 1/28/05

I don't know if Chris and Amira mean that the church is inclusive in its worship. I believe what they mean is that the Lafayette Church, historically and in the present, has social action programs that reach out to all sorts of people. Am I right?

As for the MANY VOICES concert being recorded, you will have to direct your questions to Bev Grant, the concert producer. You can e-mail her at:

Bev Grant's own group, the Brooklyn Women's Chorus, will be among the performers. So, too, will be the PMN Chorus under the direction of Ellen Davidson. In fact, the PMN Chorus will open the concert with three songs, one each by Pat Humphries, Ruth Pelham, and Joe Jencks. Ruth and Joe will both be present. But Pat -- alas! -- has a gig elsewhere. I am certain she will be there in spirit.

Don't forget that the January 28 MANY VOICES concert is part of the 2005 PMN Winter Gathering, and it will be followed by two days of activities at the Renaissance Charter School in Jackson Heights, Queens. These include various workshops -- song swaps, jam sessions, discussions, presentations, instructional sessions, etc. There will also be a one-song-per person Round Robin concert, beginning Saturday afternoon, breaking for lunch, and continuing until 11:30 PM. And on Sunday morning there will be Songs of the Spirit, a leaderless a cappella session.

For information about all three days, please visit the PMN website:

Be there!
