7pm Singing Circle with Lea Gilmore

Song lives in us all and is a part of our everyday lives in more ways than we realize. For centuries, people have used singing as a coping mechanism and healing tool, including Africans during the Middle Passage and Native Americans during the journey on the Trail of Tears. A pilot study published in the British Journal of Nursing found that singing contributes to reduction in the anxiety and depression that many patients experience following a majorsurgery and is worth prescribing before antidepressants. The Community Sings Listening Circles brings people of all ages and skill levels together to create beautiful music… no experience is necessary. The only prerequisite is a love of music and song!

Our presenter, Lea Gilmore, is a blues, gospel and jazz singing civic activist who has lent her voice, literally and figuratively, to advocacy for the underserved of the world and made a huge difference. Lea was chosen by ESSENCE MAGAZINE as one of “25 Women Shaping the World.” A former deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland and Program Director for the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers, in addition Ms. Gilmore has testified before local, state and federal commissions on issues ranging from immigration laws to the civil rights and liberties of women of color.
A native of Baltimore, Ms. Gilmore has lead concerts, choirs and singing circles around the world.

Healing In Community

Healing in Community is a transmedia project that brings the power of storytelling and awareness to both the impact of trauma and the use of ancient healing traditions. We believe that the soul must be the center and the core of healing. By using a combination of ancient healing modalities and expressive mediums such as visual arts, music, and physical movement we can create meaningful connections with ourselves and others. Healing the soul of the city is a collective effort of diverse community resources combining efforts to address the long-term impact of Trauma and provide sustainable outlets for social and economic restoration
