An evening with Survivor Girl Ukulele Band founder Laurie Kallevig
Beginners Ukulele Class @6pm
Music-Rich Presentation @7pm

On Friday, October 19, 2018, Laurie Kallevig, founder of Survivor Girl Ukulele, will offer a beginners’ ukulele class followed by a music-rich presentation. This is a chance to hear ukulele music and learn about the important and life-changing work Survivor Girl Ukulele Band is doing.

Laurie believes that music can be a powerful tool in restoring wholeness and building hope for a better future. She has been teaching ukulele in shelter homes since 2013 and is thankful for the opportunity to work with these girls and give them the gift of music. While they love to learn how to play their favorite Bollywood hits, soon they will learn how to write their owns songs and find their own voice — and write the soundtrack for the movie of their own lives.

It is Laurie’s hope and prayer that the time she shares together with the girls and the skills they gain in learning to make music with the ukulele will have dividends of joy and fun and hope and healing for years and years to come. She also hopes that the project creates more awareness that may lead to action and activism and powerful legislation against of the world-wide plague of human trafficking.

Join us for an evening with Laurie to learn more about her story and hear plenty of ukulele music along the way.
