Songs of Whychus

The Place We Cross the Water

In the spring of 2014, twenty Sisters High School students participated in a writing and visual arts section of our fieldwork. For six weeks, these students spent multiple afternoons writing poetry by Whychus Creek and creating art inspired by their surroundings.  Their poetry was eventually turned into music. The final product is a CD that contains the Songs of Whychus Creek and is enhanced by student-created art.  We would like to thank the Roundhouse Foundation for their support of this project, and Brent Allan for spending many hours in his studio recording and editing with the students. If you woud like to receive a free copy of this incredible CD, email your physical mailing address to
