Spokane Community Choir
*The Spokane Community Choir **is open to anyone and everyone who loves
to sing regardless of background or musical experience. Singing songs from
many cultures, they experience the magic and beauty of music that was
created to celebrate love, fight injustice, comfort in times of sorrow, and
glory in the beauty of the land. Director Melanie Luedders believes that
making beauty in a group is a powerful antidote to the feeling of
separateness we often experience in modern life. They sing every Thursday
from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at The Community **Building, 35 W. Main. For more
