13th annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days

Brothers of the Baladi will perform to support the 13th annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days at the Vie de Boheme on Sunday October 26th. Daniel Pearl World Music Days is an international network of music concerts using the power of music and thousands of musicians all over the globe to reaffirm tolerance, humanity and peace, celebrating the life of journalist Daniel Pearl. This sense of unity and purpose reaffirms an international stand against the divisive forces that took Daniel's life. During the month of October (Daniel’s birthday was Oct. 10) more than 8,900 concerts take place in 119 countries. Brothers of the Baladi play a fusion of American rock and pop with Middle Eastern influences: Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Armenian music. They will be performing new music from the album, Gravity of Love (to be released early next year), as well as songs from their eleven CD's. The LA Times has called the music of the Brothers "A sound that knows no borders.” Vocalist/percussionist, Michael Beach sings in Arabic, Farsi, Armenian, Spanish and English; Clark Salisbury alternates on the oud, Turkish saz and guitar; bassist J. Michael Kearsey and drummer Charles Pike hold down the backbeat. Expect the unexpected – odd time signatures, exotic melodies, music that’s almost familiar, yet “Infectiously danceable" (Artvoice Buffalo, NY.) The very talented belly dancer, Emily Sitara will also perform. Daniel Pearl World Music Days was created in response to the 2002 kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl at the hands of extremists in Karachi, Pakistan. Danny's family and friends came together to work towards a more humane world, forming the Daniel Pearl Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to promote cross-cultural understanding through journalism, music, and innovative communications.

A Talk with Soil Expert Kristen Ohlson at Vintage Books

Bestselling author and soil expert Kristin Ohlson will be at Vintage Books on Saturday, November 1st at 2pm to give a talk about the hidden dynamics of soil and its potential to save our planet. In The Soil Will Save Us, Ohlson makes an elegantly argued, passionate case for "our great green hope"—a way in which we can not only heal the land but also turn atmospheric carbon into beneficial soil carbon—and potentially reverse global warming. Kristin Ohlson is the granddaughter of farmers and the daughter of avid gardeners. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Salon, Discover, and elsewhere. This event is presented by Vintage Books and the Clark County Green Neighbors program.

Holocaust Survivor Alter Wiener to Speak at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church

Holocaust Survivor Alter Wiener to Speak at Local Parish “Hope. Never give up hope. If you lose hope, you have lost everything.” Alter Wiener On Sunday, November 16, 2014, the adult education and faith formation team (A GiFT) at Our Lady of the Lake Parish hosts Alter Wiener. The presentation will be held in the church, 790 A. Avenue, Lake Oswego, OR at 2:00 PM. Alter Wiener was born in 1926 in Chrzanow, Poland. His family was devoutly Jewish. In September of 1939, he and his family left his hometown near the German border and fled to the interior of Poland. In late November, after his father’s death, the family returned to Chrzanow. In June of 1942, at the age of 16, Wiener was deported to a forced labor camp. He was one of 80 people crammed into a train car to Blechammer where he shared a room with 23 other people. It was there that he was reunited with his brother. From June of 1942 to May of 1945, Alter was incarcerated in five different forced labor camps. At the last one, Waldenburg Concentration Camp, he was stripped of his name and the last of his belongings. Only a number identified him. On May 9, 1945, the day after the official German capitulation by the Russian Army, Wiener was liberated. He returned to his hometown. Eventually, Alter married, had two sons, who gave him six grandsons. In 1960, Alter and his family immigrated to America. He attended evening classes at Brooklyn College to learn accounting. He moved to Oregon in 2000 and began working on his memoirs. His autobiography, 64734-From A Name to A Number, was published in 2007. Alter is one of few Holocaust survivors still living in the Portland area. He received an Honorary Bachelor Degree from Warner Pacific College, an Honorary Law Degree from Lewis & Clark Law School, and the prestigious Americanism Medal from the Daughters of the American Revolution. He has given nearly 900 presentations. Alter will be available to sign his book after the presentation in the Parish Hall. The book will be on sale for $20. This is a free event. A free will offering will be taken. For further information, please visit www.ollparish.com.
