The Jackson County Public Library in Sylva will host a performance by Ubuntu Dillsboro, an a capella community chorus, at 7 p.m. July 17.
“Ubuntu Dillsboro is a group of people who love to sing in harmony,” said Tom Tyre, the group’s leader. “We sing because it allows us to be a part of something much bigger than the sum of us.”
The African word Ubuntu refers to the interconnectedness of humanity and means, loosely, “I am who I am because of the people around me and our relationship with each other.”
Ubuntu Dillsboro is a member of the Ubuntu International Network of community choirs. The group performs publicly on occasion but meets regularly simply to sing for the joy of it.
The program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library.
