    <nt-weight: bold">Carleton choir worship service to celebrate cross-cultural
    religious reliefs this weekend

    The Carleton College Choir will present a “Multifaith Service of Prayer and Praise” on Sunday, March 1 at 5 p.m. in the Skinner Memorial Chapel at Carleton College. The special service strives to recognize, affirm, and celebrate beliefs that cross all cultural barriers. The event is free and open to the public, but attendees are asked to bring donations for the Faribault Chapter of the American Red Cross, in recognition of American Red Cross month.

    An ensemble of 40 auditioned, mixed-voice students, the Choir will both perform and serve as lay readers in the worship service. The Pro Musica Singers, a six-voice mixed ensemble, and a four-voice treble ensemble will also perform. The service will feature music and praise from various cultures and religions, including a Native American Zuni song, a Jewish prayer chanted in Hebrew, and an Arabic chanting of the Sura from the Holy Qu’ran; English translations will be recited by students.

    The Choir is honored to perform the same service earlier that day at 10 a.m. at the Dayton Avenue Presbyterian Church in St. Paul. An open faith community with a focus on social justice and faith-based action, this urban, liberal Christian church draws a diverse congregation from across the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

    Both services are the result of a unique collaboration made possible by Lawrence Burnett, Carleton College choir director; Carolyn Fure-Slocum, Carleton College chaplain; Reverend H. David Stewart, pastor of Dayton Avenue Presbyterian Church; and Dr. Robert Morris, minister of music at Dayton Avenue Presbyterian Church.

    The Dayton Avenue Presbyterian Church is located at 217 Mackubin Street in St. Paul. The Skinner Memorial Chapel is located at the intersection of First and College Streets on the Carleton College campus. For more information on these services, please contact Gao Hong Dice at (507) 222-4475.

    Black Student Alliance to present “We Speak”

    Carleton’s Black Student Alliance (BSA) will present an evening of performance entitled “We Speak” on Saturday, Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. in the Skinner Memorial Chapel. “We Speak” is a collection of spoken word and other creative performances related to the African American experience and is free and open to the public.

    For more information, including disability accommodations, please contact the Office of Intercultural Life at (507) 222-4014 or Marquita Davis, the president of the BSA, at [email protected].

    DVDFest to present student produced short films on Friday

    DVDFest, the annual event that showcases student-produced five minute films, falls on a Friday this year rather than Saturdays as in years past. Because of a scheduling conflict with We Speak, which will occur on Saturday night, DVDFest has moved to Friday.
