“The Karma’s Gonna Come On Down” by Lytingale

 
 
Angry old white man sittin’ in a tower.

Angry old white men sittin’ on the bench.

Angry old white men clingin’ to your power

But the karma’s gonna come on down.

Lies are lies, not alternative facts.

Lies are lies, and the truth’ll come out.

Lies are lies, you better clean up your act

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down

(Chorus:)

The karma’s gonna come on down.

The karma’s gonna come on down real soon.

Do unto others what you want done to you,

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down.  Oh, yeah.

10/13/2017 PAN HARMONIA OCTOBER CONCERT “All Hallowed Viola” & Midday Music at OLLI

All Hallowed Viola

Enjoy a rare opportunity to revel in the deep, rich voice of the solo viola. At times lyrical, then mischievous, then majestic, come experience the viola in all its facets. The program features unaccompanied works by JS Bach and Henri Vieuxtemps, along with works for viola and piano: the soaring tone poem “Adagio” by Zoltan Kodaly, and the heroic Sonata op. 11 No. 4 by Paul Hindemith. 

Audiences may know Kara Poorbaugh as the Principal Violist of the Asheville Symphony, and the violist of the Opal String Quartet. She has also performed with Pan Harmonia for many years. She will be joined by the inestimable Tate Addis on piano.  See 


Featured Artist: DAVID LA MOTTE

LaMotte’s first album in a decade offers twelve new songs played by three dozen musicians from six continents. A fusion of cultural influences, from blues to bluegrass and from Latin to African, are mixed together by LaMotte and his two co-producers, Chris Rosser and Tom Prasada-Rao, to create an aural travelogue that mirrors LaMotte’s own geographical journey in the last ten years. The songs are also informed by his personal journey—becoming a father, living and working around the world, and exploring his own capacity for positive impact in questions of justice and peace.
