The Church of the Redeemer raised $639 for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Dakota Access Pipeline Donation Fund, through an April 2 concert at the Kenmore church. The fund is used for legal, sanitary, and emergency purposes.
The concert was organized by Church of the Redeemer musical director Sheila Bristow.
“I don’t believe police should be militarized for the benefit of private corporations,” Bristow said.
Also performing was Erica Row, soprano; Ellaina Lewis, soprano; Judson Scott, trumpet; Phoebe Rawn, flute; and Maddy Scott, bassoon. All artists donated their time, so all contributions could go to the Standing Rock Sioux.
