5:30 pm: LightHouse Choir
Aug 24 –
"Ms. Maria, could you please sing with us, and be the director of the choir?"
This was the question posed in Budapest to Maria Flamich when about fifteen students turned to her to lead them when the director left the choir and the School for the Blind. And this is how Maria took over the choir the students, most of whom she knew because she taught them English as a foreign language. Music was always an integral part of the lessons, as it is an integral part of Maria's life.
Maria Flamich is a Ph.D. Fulbright Scholar from Budapest, Hungary now at the English Department of the University of California Berkeley. She conducts research on cultural representations of disability with professors Georgina Kleege and Susan Schweik. Maria's interest focuses mainly on music. She is a singer, a choir director and a concert organizer, and she believes that music is a powerful way of expressing blind people's often hidden value.
Now Maria has just generously offered to spend time at LightHouse until around July, to form a choir for the LightHouse community and invites blind and sighted people to come and sing together.
The LightHouse cordially invites both blind and sighted community members to come together and fill the LightHouse with song. The only requirement is to love music and Maria will guide us through the rest. If you love singing, join us for weekly practice and make your voice heard! RSVP to Adult Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at email@example.com or 415-694-7316.
The events for the upcoming week are read aloud on our event hotline every Friday, which can be accessed by calling (415)694-7325.
