‘Velsum‘ is a musical initiative formed through Lucien Dante Lazar and Ultra-Violet Archer. Celebrating harmony, rhythm, prayer, and the human voice, Velsum’s songs are inspired to develop our human capacity for Love and Logic. Each song is permeated with a sincere interest in the other, the self, the world, and the cosmos. Velsum’s music is a product of listening – we hope that by listening to these songs, you feel heard!
Lucien and Ultra met as children at the Chicago Waldorf School, and became friends and collaborators as young adults. They now write, record and perform original music through the initiative Velsum. They debuted the show ‘New Nightingale, New Rose’ last winter at Angelic Organics Farm, and have performed it throughout the Midwest. Through weaving harmonies, poetic recitations, and movement, ‘New Nightingale, New Rose’ invites the audience on a quest for love and wisdom. A joyful experience awaits young and old!

The Portal of Initiation
A reading group has formed to share the first Mystery Drama by Rudolf Steiner. Come and join into this endeavor.
The cycle of four Mystery Dramas will be performed summer 2023 in Dornach, Switzerland at the Goetheanum. There is a worldwide initiative to read the plays in as many languages and settings as possible to prepare the ground in support for this event.
It is not too late to join! We are having great fun reading in parts and pondering the questions and mysteries of these plays together.
Our regular time is Wednesdays from 7.30 to 9 pm. (For those who wish there is a light potluck supper from 6.30 onward)
