Mayor Colleen Mahr and The Fanwood Arts Council Present
The Fanwood Performance Series 2011 Final Fall Performance
Saturday November 12, A Cappella Night
Olympia's Daughters is a women's a cappella choir that builds bridges between communities and cultures. Through song, we challenge attitudes, foster healing, share our hearts, spirits,
and joyful love of music. We perform at events such as cultural festivals, domestic violence vigils and church services. We take our name from Olympia Brown, the first female who was
ordained by a national denomination-the Universalists. She was also a leading suffragist, a mother, and a business woman.
In the spring of 2007, five singers came together with one goal in mind: to form an a cappella group that could hold their own
in competition against a local rival group at a friend's bar-b-que. The competition came and went, but, to the surprise of
many--and the chagrin of their rivals--the quintet did not disband afterwards. A few months of rehearsals and many cases of
beer later, they were ready to perform for total strangers. Today, the Random Thoughts can be heard doing it a cappella
throughout central New Jersey.
As usual we will be offering refreshments for sale, during fifteen minute intermissions. The suggested
donation is ten dollars, five dollars for seniors and youngsters. To make a reservation email us at:
