This season the Seattle Peace Chorus begins with a concert to championing courageous journalists who often put their lives on the line to bring vital information to the world, celebrating the remarkable freedoms guaranteed to us in the First Amendment, particularly the freedom of the press.

People of the Drum

Music honoring the Native American legacy, an original composition by Frederick N. West

  • Featuring soloists, instrumentalists, and dancers from local tribes.
  • It draws on several different Native American traditions, weaving stories from past and present, to illuminate the complexity, diversity and adversity of their experiences.

Native American tribes in the United States have had years of struggles to uphold treaties that protect their rights to fishing, hunting, and preservation of their sacred grounds. This work will include poetic renderings of these and other legacies, including the Navaho prayer “Beauty before us, beauty behind us, we walk in beauty, it is finished in beauty.”
