Performance Series Concert Benefits Common Ground
Patty Stevenson and Craig Siemsen are known for their gorgeous harmonies, impeccable musicianship, playful stage humor, and jewel-like original songs. Patty says about performing, “I try for magic – nothing less! For the place that opens hearts.” They will perform on guitar, piano, harp, and dulcimer for this special evening at UU Church West.
The concert begins at 7:30pm in the UU Church West Sanctuary Saturday April 26, 2014. Doors open at 7:00. Admission is by a donation of $15.00 — proceeds will benefit the good work of community organizing group Common Ground SE Wisconsin.
During May 2014, our Director of Music Ruben Piirainen will be on sabbatical for a month, learning new things, relaxing, and having a shift of perspective that will bring him back to UUCW refreshed and ready to engage with us in new ways.
Pam Blevins Hinkle, a Unitarian Universalist and music director from Indianapolis, IN will be with us in May as our “Sabbatical Music Director.” Pam is a classically-trained flutist, multi-instrumentalist, singer, choral conductor, improviser, composer, arts administrator, and lover of chant and sacred song. She says, “My life, my art, and my spirituality are intertwined and informed by a passion for creating beauty, building community, and exploring intersections between creativity and spirit, between artistic disciplines, between places and people, and more.”
