Plenary

The Power of Song
Presented by PMN’s Artists-in-Residence, Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner

For over 40 years, songwriters, singers and activists Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner (a.k.a. Magpie), have devoted themselves to singing for peace, justice, and the earth. Their presentation will focus on the ways in which they have experienced or witnessed momentous and meaningful change brought about through the poignancy and power of song, whether the change be personal transformation, inspiration, fostering of unity and solidarity or resolution of conflicts and issues. The ways in which songs can be bridges between diverse and disparate people and issues will be shown and exemplified through performance with audience participation.
