MLK concert Monday at UUC

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis will present lively choirs and community singing in “Come Together Singing,”  a Martin Luther King Day concert at 7 p.m., Monday, Jan. 21, at 27074 Patwin Rd.

The UUCD Sparks Choir and the Free Range Singers, a community choir, will perform African, Russian, Irish and African-American songs as well as “This Is How I Pray” by local musician Jan Peters and a group of songs by Laurence Cole of Port Townsend, Wash. Both choirs are directed by Laura Sandage.

The suggested donation of $5 to $15 will go to support Yolo County Court-Appointed Special Advocates for Children, a group of community volunteers appointed by judges to advocate for abused or neglected children in foster care.

“Unitarian Universalism encourages a hope-filled life, affirming the inherent worth and dignity of every person,” said the Rev. Elizabeth Banks, the church’s senior minister. “This concert is a perfect opportunity to feel the joy of music and to support work of Yolo County CASA.”

Sandage added: “People are deeply inspired by singing together and hearing others sing. I wanted to create a chance for more singing on this important day and to tie the event to a justice-related local cause. That led me to Yolo County CASA.”

The concert will include separate performances by each choir, a set of songs by both choirs and an audience sing-along. Katie Henry, who assists in leading the Free Range Singers, will add lead vocals and guitar and banjo accompaniment. Other instrumentalists will be drummer Johnny Flores, piano accompanist Nancy Lower, concertina player Sandage, and a UU Juuliebells handbell ensemble directed by Barbara Meixner.

Refreshments will be served following the concert.
