With more than 450 people gathered on a celebratory evening, the film has more than 25 poets and artists, and music from Alysia Tromblay and Kate Munger & the Threshold Choir.  Celebrating Sisters Singing is a sacred love letter to the world, filled with the possibilities of human relationship with all that is holy. The film is an offering to anyone who loved Sisters Singing, to anyone who loves the spoken word, great music, unique art, heartfelt praise of the sacred. Here the sisters will make you laugh and weep and sing. They will help you believe in the world of human possibilities. They will call you into your own heart.

Early Praise for Celebrating Sisters Singing

"I walked into the Sisters Singing opening

event, unfamiliar with Carolyn Brigit Flynn

and the incredible creativity her teaching evokes.

I was blown away by the magic and power

that vibrated through every bit of that evening.

I cried, I laughed, I was touched at my core.

I'd been in a writing doldrums and I walked

away full of words, inspired to write. I am

thrilled that this amazing event is available

on DVD. Now, you too, can be deeply moved

by the artwork, the music, the poetry, the

stories and the singing. This film will touch

your soul."

          Laura Davis, author of I Thought We'd Never

Speak Again and co-author of The Courage to Heal

 

"It was a truly magical evening. Music and

poetry seemed to rain down from the heavens

and fill the room.  Alysia Tromblay’s music

was exquisite.  The art, the poetry, the singing...

no one in the huge crowd wanted to leave!

It is a real treasure that this beautiful evening

has been preserved on film.”
