Music Under the Stars: Free classical music

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Mondays July 6, 13, 20, and 27, 7:15pm to 9:15pm at Columbia Park

Grab a blanket, pack a picnic and join your Church of Hope friends and neighbors for an evening of great classical music in Columbia Park… for free! Each summer, the Seattle Chamber Music Society brings top musicians from around the world to perform at Benaroya Hall. The concerts are broadcast live by KING-FM radio, and streamed into various parks in Seattle, including Columbia Park.  It’s called MUSIC UNDER THE STARS, and it’s been one of Seattle’s best-loved summer traditions for over 20 years. The events take place each Monday evening in July  in Columbia Park, at the corner of Rainier Ave. S, and S. Alaska (between the Library and the Rainier Valley Cultural Center).  At 7:15pm, there’s live classical music performed by an outstanding student ensemble, followed at 8:00pm by the KING-FM broadcast from Benaroya Hall.

Sunday, August 23, 2015, 3:30-5:30pm

@Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church, 7500 Greenwood Ave N

Race: We can talk about it! As parents, how do we recognize the ways we are shaped by race and privilege in order to raise children who see beyond superficial notions of colorblindness? Let’s explore how we can prepare to seize the teachable moments that arise when we least expect them. Join scholar and activist Stacy Kitahata and children’s therapist Donna Linn for this interactive workshop on how we can help kids understand race, privilege, and its impact on all our lives. For families of all races with preschool through early elementary children. Childcare includes age-appropriate program for kids on appreciating difference and recognizing privilege. Co-sponsored by Columbia City Church of Hope, The Well, and Krista Foundation for Global Citizenship. $15 per family, or pay what you are able. Tickets at Brown Paper Tickets:
