“Spirit Sounds: A Collaboration of Inter-Faithful Musicians” is a 12 track CD and Interfaith Concert of original inter-religious music
WHAT? Spirit Sounds: A Collaboration of Inter-Faithful Musicians is a 12 track CD and Interfaith Concert of original inter-religious music from Atlanta, Georgia
WHO? All contributors are religious scholars and/or have shown committment and leadership in their faith communities. Artists commit to collaborating on songs composition and instrumental accompaniment with members of different faiths to jointly express religious commitment and struggles; connect with history and tradition; utilize faith-based musical style; channel spiritual energy; and address concerns of modern religious challenges and questions.Participating members include guitarists, vocalists, keyboardists, pianists, drummers, and lyricists of Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist and Atheist backgrounds.
WHY? This project was inspired by President Barack Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, which stresses the importance of religious collaboration to develop understanding and relationships across traditions. All religions, through various practices, use music to unite with a greater whole, and Spirit Sounds has the potential to create a dialogue of common experience and raise up individuals within the context of their tradition. My deepest wish is that this project will be a national example of how music, reflection, spirit, education, and creativity can cultivate beauty, peace and loving friendship.
WHEN? The project will culminate in an Interfaith Concert on Thursday, April 19, 7:00 at Cannon Chapel in Emory University
MONEY? The CD will be produced by Will Robertson, a graduate of Berklee School of Music and Synagogue Chorus Director of Congregation Bet Haverim. And we need to pay him for his valuable time! Donations will also go to ordering CDs and concert costs.
So please contribute, whatever you can makes a difference. Thank you so much for your good wishes and donations!
