What if their story was your story?

Inspired by the plight of refugees and the quote, “What if their story was your story,” director Erin Guinup felt compelled to reach out to refugees in April 2016.  She chose to use her gift for music with an aim to help refugees feel safe and accepted and supported.  Beginning with a partnership with Tacoma Community House, a choir was formed consisting of refugees and supportive allies.  That pilot project in September 2016 included 22 singers and refugees and ESL students from Sudan, Iraq, Haiti, Ukraine, Cambodia, Korea and Mexico.
