Her presentation helps prepare for a concert later this month at the Church of the Redeemer, featuring Anne Garrels and Neal Conan from NPR reading memoir about their time as war correspondents, and stories about wounded warriors and their families, accompanied by the beautiful music of Ensemble Galilei.

March 31 – It Ain’t Necessarily So – Sam Dowding will lead a discussion of certain Bible stories where it is best not to take them at face value, but find historical and symbolic interpretations that make us dig deeper to find inspiration.

Between War and Here

Saturday, March 30, 2019    7:00pm
The Church of the Redeemer
5603 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD

War is not an abstraction. It is personal. And the wounds of war don’t stop at the warrior. They reverberate through families and communities.

Between War and Here is a powerful new collaboration between journalists and musicians, exploring honor, courage, loss, and hope. With music, poetry, and memoir, and featuring two of NPR’s most storied war correspondents, this extraordinary work of art is as mesmerizing as it is timely.

Neal Conan and Anne Garrels have covered wars and conflicts around the world. They have been in the middle of firefights, they have seen war, lived it, and been changed by it. Ensemble Galilei members Sue Richards and Carolyn Surrick spent seven years of Fridays playing for wounded warriors and their families at The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Music and text. It is what Ensemble Galilei does. They are brilliant, masterful musicians with a keen ear for the ways that music can amplify, intensify, and reveal the human heart. Every moment of this project is real and true. And deeply personal.

All performances of Between War and Here will benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. For tickets and more information visit
