Earth Tones is a sweet memory for the singers now, but I hope that the effects of our concert will continue to touch people's lives in small ways. The money raised will be used to build Nokomis/Grandmother Drum, for M'Wikwedong. Perhaps people in the audience learned new things about Indigenous people. Perhaps some will go to programs at M'Wikedong and get to know their neighbours. I know that hearts were touched because people told me they had tears at different moments. I do wish we had a good sound recording... the performing was brilliant. Our choir sounded better than it ever has. Alchemy!! The Drum Circle were incredible! Sylvie and Mike, as always, were wonderful. Miigwetch everyone!
