Celebrate the Bountiful Harvest at a Fundraiser for Sustain DuPage
featuring Something Different
Something Different is partnering with Sustain DuPage to use their music
to give thanks for all that Planet Earth provides. It is the bands
deepest belief that music is a uniting energy and has the power to build
community that honors diversity.
Sustain DuPage is a not-for-profit group dedicated to creating a
sustainable culture in this county. Sustainability is,
Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Sustain DuPage believes that in order to create this the needs of people, the environment, and the economy must all be in balance. They have taken on several projects that meet this criteria including a community garden, restoration of natural habitats and an environmental commission to advise municipal governments on the impacts of their actions.

Something Different formed in 2014 as a way to show the versatility of the
Native American Flute. Pat Smith and Karen Tlusty-Rissman play flutes to
the accompaniment of John Rissman's skillful guitar, ukulele, bouzouki and didgeridoo. Their compositions include blues, ballads, Latin, Middle
Eastern and other musical genres. It is their greatest joy to share
original music that celebrates all cultures. Check out their music at
This concert will feature new pieces including guest percussionist,
didgeridoo and hang drum player Norby Poffet, the poetry of Maureen
Connolly, a song by Jackie Harris, Sustain DuPage member and songs that
express gratitude for all that sustains us.
