Mosaic Harmony proudly presents "Mosaic Harmony and Friends - One Humankind" as our first annual concert consisting of choirs we have invited to participate from the Washington metropolitan area. Mosaic Harmony is a multi-faith, multicultural community choir that draws on the rich heritage of African-American inspirational music. As a human mosaic, we strive to illustrate and encourage unity in the midst of diversity, one song at a time. Committed to the belief that inspirational music can create a community of interfaith and racial harmony, the choir members represent several different races, numerous faith traditions, and a variety of occupations. We are joined together by the ministry of music, our beliefs uniting us as a choir, energizing us to share our message and connect to others. Together we celebrate a commitment to creative expression, musical excellence, commitment to service and shared joy and support. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been funded over the years by donations from our devoted members and fans, and through paid performances, and by annual Mosaic Harmony fundraising concerts. The choir performs approximately ten times during its choral season in locations throughout the Washington metropolitan area. We seek to promote interfaith, interracial harmony through our performances. We welcome singers and audiences of different faiths, races, and cultures. We lift spirits, stir souls, and enliven audiences wherever we perform!

A Week of Diversity Celebrations

End Date: Sunday 7th of February 2016 12:00:00 AM
Location: Various including a Church, Synagogue and a Mosque
Address: 1105 Quarrier St. Charleston WV 25301
The West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry, a group of Muslim, Jewish and Christian clergy and laypersons, is preparing the Week of Diversity Celebrations for our community because we believe that only personal interactions between people can counter the anti-refugee sentiment that is on the rise in cities and towns in America. Our city of Charleston, West Virginia, USA is a place with a long history of coal mining. Poverty rates are high, and educational opportunities are available, but often out of reach for financial reasons. Most residents are Protestant Christians, both in the mainstream denominations and Evangelical denominations. Jew and Muslims have lived here for well over 100 years, but interactions between groups are not as common as they could be. Our community also has a strong African-American community, but unfortunately churches and lives are often segregated. We hope that a week of positive opportunities for groups who rarely meet, to get together, discuss issues and have fun, will diminish fear of the 'other' and promote friendships. We want our community to be a place where people protect each other from xenophobia. Here is the schedule for our Week of Diversity Celebrations (subject to change - we have been asked to also link the week to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebrations in January 2016, and we are considering adding travel to hold events in other places in our state or region that have problems with intolerance, so we may add or replace events prior to the dates below): A Week of Diversity Celebrations - 1 - SUNDAY - Kick off event dinner / reception - 300 people, 2.5 hours 2 - MONDAY - Appreciative Practices event - 100 people, 2 hours A two hour practice in Appreciation Includes the spiritual, psychological, cultural, and practical applications 100 people, live presenter 3 - WEDNESDAY - Group Discussions around diversity and accepting the other - 100 people Small group discussion around three short diversity-oriented film clips (Clips from the films Managing diversity and Cracking the Code) 100 people, 10 round tables with 10 people each, discussing 3 video clips - 2 hours 4 - FRIDAY - respectful day 5 - SATURDAY - Nonviolent Communication Introduction - 100 people, 4 hours Introduction in the use of the tools of Nonviolent Communication Saturday morning event, 100 people in a circle, big room, live presenter 6 - SATURDAY - Closing Event dinner / reception - 300 people, 2.5 hours
