Project Community Spotlights the Growing Tree

Growing Tree is a two-term
service project where students
engage elementary-aged
children from addictive homes
in therapeutic activities, focus-
ing on the family aspects of
chemical dependency. Below is
an edited version of one
student's recent journal entry.
Project Community has greatly
affected my life, especially my
relationship with my mother. I
now feel I have a better under-
standing for what she is going
through and I can begin to sort
out my feelings. My mother
decided to go to Alcoholics
Anonymous and I am happy to
report things are going very well
for her. She now realizes what
she has put us through. She told
my sister that our talk over
Winter Break really helped
change her mind about getting
help. I guess it would be pretty
hard not to get help if your kids
told you flat out that they
thought you were an alcoholic.
I have to commend myself for a
moment because I feel I spoke
intelligently to her aboutkher
problem and the effects it has
had on my life as well as ways

she could get help. My self weight has been lifted off my

although I still dread to see her

better because she will have

she will drink and pick fights

* Hear the Sound of Soweto
For twenty six years, nearly as long as Nelson Mandela languished in
prison, Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens has pranced across stadium
stages throughout South Africa dressed in Zulu finery and belting out
their allegorical music. This band will perform on Tuesday, March 12 in
Detroit (Rackham Memorial Auditorium) and on Wednesday, March 13
in Ann Arbor (Michigan Theatre). The concerts are presented by the
Office of Major Events.
"Mbaqanga" is a stew poor South Africans used to eat daily. In 1962,
a Johannesburg band led by saxophonist West Nkosi invented a
mixture of traditional rhythm, street music, and international pop; as it
was a "stew" made of all elements available, they called it
Right away, township people recognized the music as their own. It
was modern and electric, but derived from traditional wedding music.
Mbaqanga rapidly spread through the country and for 26 years the
group sold an average of one to two million of each record they made.
Last spring, Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens sold out shows
from Los Angeles to New York and won a hero's welcome at the
New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Locally, the Queens won a
standing ovation at the 14th Ann Arbor Folk Festival.
As wonderful as their records are, the music is only one element in
their highly theatrical stage show. It is an optimal blend of singing,
musicianship, dancing, costumes, and audience rapport -
especially for a band that sings in Zulu and speaks minimal English.
Concert tickets are available at the Michigan Union Ticket Office. To
obtain ticket information, or to charge by phone, call 763- TKTS.
*Enjoy Peter, Paul & Mary's First
,Ann Arbor Performance
Peter, Paul & Mary, the trio which has made such timeless recordings
as "Blowin' in the Wind," "If I Had a Hammer," and "Puff, the Magic
Dragon", will perform in their first Ann Arbor concert on Thursday,
March 14 at 8:00 p.m. in Hill Auditorium. The concert is presented by
the Office of Major Events.
It was nearly three decades ago when three folk singers combined
talents and made their debut at Greenwich Village's Bitter End coffee
house. What began there has grown into a legacy, shared by people all
over the world who are now on a first name basis with Peter, Paul &
Just as Peter, Paul & Mary placed themselves on the front lihes in the
civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960's, their individual
and collective efforts focus on issues including homelessness, the en-
vironment, world hunger, apartheid, and the sanctuary movement.
Though Peter, Paul & Mary have performed for thirty years, and do
celebrate the past and a sense of continuity, they continue to look ahead,
evolve, and explore new musical arenas. Their recently released album,
"Flowers and Stones" on Gold Castle Records retains the intimacy of a
traditional Peter, Paul & Mary recording, but adds a more improvisa-
tional attitude to the vocal harmonies and the instrumental arrangements.
Concert tickets are available at the Michigan Union Ticket Office. To
obtain ticket information, or to charge by phone, call 763- TKTS.
