World Holiday Sing Along

For people of all ages, from every tradition.  We collect ahead of time songs for the winter holidays and will send out a link with songs and lyrics for families to practice.  2015 date December 19th from 10am to 12pm. We will come together for a cross cultural community sing along in studio 11 or larger location TBA in the McGuffey Art center. 


The foundation that started this cultural movement.

In the fall of 2011 Luminaria began working with the ARC of the Piedmonts infant development program in the South Wood Community.  Estela provided fun music and movement classes to spanish speaking immigrant families with children 0-5 and their adults.  We enjoyed each other so much, we decide to invite families to McGuffey Art Center for the following year.  During this time we explored stories, songs, art and food associated with our roots traditions. At the end 2012, Estela had collected over 30 traditional and original tunes in spanish to share with families. Various other events have blossomed, inspired by this group.  Of these are our annual Dia De Los Muerots event and our yearly Latin Music and Folkloric Dance festival.  We are currently hoping as busy parents to find the time to get together and work on a Holiday collection of songs, recipes and arts and crafts ideas associated with very significant Latin American Holidays such as; Dia De Los Muertos, Navidad and Carnival.  If you are interested in volunteering to help make this possible let me know!
