SingPeace! Orcas | Creating a culture of peace through music

We sing songs from around the world that express and envision peace and help us feel more peaceful in ourselves, songs to buoy us up and give us hope, songs of longing, and songs that are just fun. We come together to sing in harmony for personal, local and global transformation. We sing to open our hearts, re-enchant our spirits, and connect with each other.

We are an all-inclusive, non-audition singing group in the Ubuntu choir tradition. All voices are welcome, and no singing experience is required. We welcome and respond to requests to Sing When Asked To (SWAT).

Armistice Day, 2019

On Sunday, November 10, 2019, at the Orcas Island Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, we sang songs commemorating Armistice Day. (Armistice Day was the next day, November 11.) Sharon also spoke about the history of Armistice Day and Veterans Day, and shared how novelist Kurt Vonnegut and the Veterans for Peace group have urged Americans to resume observation of Armistice Day as it was originally observed, as a day to reflect on how we can achieve peace.
