Join percussionist/drum circle leader Lori Fithian for a family-friendly music/drum jam – an evening of rhythm games, vocal improv, movement and more, with a focus on FUN!

Ever since leading that first drum circle at West Park in 1998, Lori Fithian has been offering her “Drummunity” programs throughout the Great Lakes region – at libraries, schools, conferences, faith communities, retreats, camps, festivals, and family celebrations. She’s got a van loaded full of drums & percussion, a lifetime of music-making experience, and lots of circle-singing & improvisation games.

This event is hosted by Curtis Glatter, who has been drumming, recording and performing for over 30 years. Drumming is proven to be good for hand-eye coordination and cognition, stress relief, enhancing spiritual joy and improving musicality in all ages!

We sing short, soothing, comforting songs that are easy to learn and sing.  Many (but not all) of them come from the Threshold Choir repertoire. You can sing along, lead a song for our friendly, welcoming group (usually around a dozen people), or simply listen. There is no charge (donations to Interfaith Center are appreciated) and no experience is necessary.  

Participants tell us how calm and uplifted they feel after a Singing for Comfort session.  We hope you can come experience the peace and comfort.

PAST EVENTS AT THE INTERFAITH CENTER

Every year, World Peace Meditation Day is held on December 31 as the whole world contemplates the start of a new year. It bears the promise of ushering in a new era of peaceful relations in the world by making people more mindful of concepts like self-control and personal development. It is commonly known that when people are at peace with themselves, they are more likely to seek out and build peaceful relationships in their community and country. Even in those parts of the world that are affected by war, meditation can help those affected by violence to overcome their loss and avoid being negatively affected by the events taking place around them.
