Song leader Laurence Cole is coming back to Orcas Island to share songs of belonging that nourish the soul and re-enchant the world with song.

There will be a lively evening of easy-to-learn songs with vibrant rhythms and delicious harmonies, deep meaning and joyous connection. Participation is by donation. The suggested offering is $10-20, free for children. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

The event is on Wednesday, July 23 at 8 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Hall.

Laurence will be joined by fellow song leader Gretchen Sleicher, who delights in weaving group singing and harmony-making into the building of a new life-sustaining society. Together, they lead the Songlines Community Choir in Port Townsend, Washington.

“Part of my mission is to re-acquaint people with their birthright and natural ability to make beautiful and meaningful sound together,” Cole said. “Group singing is one of the most ancient and primal ‘technologies of belonging’ that we humans have been using since our earliest times. When we make joyous and passionate song together, it nourishes our souls and offers an enlivening gift back to the natural world.”

To listen and learn Cole’s songs, including the different layers, harmonies and meaning behind each, visit his website at www.laurencecole.com.
