Listen to beautiful singing by Voices of Harmony and Champion Voices, and join in to celebrate heroes for social change in this community singing event.
Afterwards (at 4:30) our group will gather at a local establishment (in Roslindale) for half an hour or so to reflect on the event. We'll decide on the location for gathering in the comment section of this meetup.

Alchemy: A mysterious power or process of transforming something common, from its essential pieces, into something big, magical, unique, and/or powerful.
This event honors the efforts of two deceased heroes of social change, Martin Luther King, Jr. and the recently late Nelson Mandela. Both of these men created communities of people devoted to service. We also want to be reminded of all these people that didn't receive as much acclaim but made small efforts (some life threatening) to make huge positive changes. While we remember them, we want to sing songs of freedom that helped them along the way.
Please consider bringing songs to lead that teach us about the values and efforts of these people. We hope that everyone will get a chance to share and will bring our own just in case. Come ready to sing along. (Lyrics sheets will be provided.)
Lose yourself in song, rejoice in appreciation of big and small heroes, connect with an open and accepting community, and share a piece of your essence.
If you are able please bring an appetizer or dessert to share.
