Lake Forest Park Rotary welcomes Up With People: VOICES

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Lake Forest Park Rotary Club is one of five Community Rotary clubs welcoming and presenting "Up With People: VOICES" on September 29 at 6:00 pm at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall, 321 Mercer Street, Seattle, WA 9811.

This high-energy show communicates and inspires people in each city they visit. The 100-member international cast brings the community together for an enjoyable evening of entertainment while sparking people to take action in meeting for the needs of their community, other countries, and the world. Over the past 45 years, the casts have toured the globe, performing for millions of audiences and at the Rose Bowl Parade, and for four Super Bowl halftime shows.

They value the power of music as a universal language, and the performing arts as an important part of their student experience and what they bring to each community through their services to each community they visit. Their aim is to leave the audience feeling empowered to connect, communicate and create positive change in order to, "rise above the noises, and listen to the voices of the world" with a message of hope and goodwill across nations as they electrify your feet, stir your soul and touch your heart. They will also be working in local middle schools to address anti-bullying.

On September 26, from 6:00 - 8:30 pm, they will volunteering at Rotary First Harvest partners to support local food banks and Habitat for Humanity in Seattle/Auburn communities.
Visit Up With People to sign up.

The show has been performed in 64 countries in the world and has been seen by over 22 million people in the last 46 years. More than 21,000 young men and women have come together to deliver a common message of hope and goodwill to people around the world, while they pursue their own global education and personal growth through service, music and travel. The program addresses the very real need for international young leaders to develop global perspective, intercultural understanding, leaderships skills and dedication to community service.

More impressive than where Up With People has been is the very real and sustainable change it has inspired across the globe through its network of more than 21,000 alumni. For over four decades, students who have traveled with UWP have gone on to become enthusiastic leaders in their communities, their countries and the world. Equipped with the life skills and broad perspectives learned through their experiences, many of the alumni have become true global citizens and continue to give back in their careers and everyday lives. Up With People is extremely thankful to its alumni and owes a great deal of its success to the ongoing support from its alumni network in all parts of the world.
