Concert and participatory sing planned in Port Townsend

PORT TOWNSEND — Songlines choir will conduct its Winter Concert and Participatory Sing at 7 p.m. Sunday.

The concert will be in the Cotton Building, 607 Water St. Admission is by donation.

All proceeds will be donated to Dove House.

Co-directors Laurence Cole and Gretchen Sleicher said they are committed to sharing the joy and power of group singing, where all voices are welcome.

“When all the parts are singing together, we become a “partner-ship,” a vessel which carries us to delicious places we could never reach alone,” according to Cole, founder of the group.

“We love it when the room fills with such passionate expression of meaning, harmony, rhythm and beauty.”

PT Songlines is part of a network of choirs in U.S., Canada and throughout the world which are dedicated to building community through song.

Those interested in singing together as a community can join the next Songlines singing season, which will meet every Tuesday starting Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. at Rosewind Common House, 3131 Haines St.
