San Diego Women’s Chorus: New Member Info Session & Orientation

Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 4pm
SDWC’s fall season starts in early September and new members will be accepted at that time! We invite you to add more singing into your life and consider joining the San Diego Women’s Chorus. We welcome all woman-identified, gender-nonconforming, non-binary, and transgender individuals as singing members. SDWC sings music for Soprano and Alto voices. Reading music is not necessary, however singing members should have the ability to match pitch. SDWC rehearses weekly on Sunday afternoon from 4:00 – 7:00pm at the Mission Hills United Church of Christ.
SDWC’s New Member Orientation meeting will take place on Sunday 8/26/18 at 4:00pm at the Mission Hills United Church of Christ (4070 Jackdaw St, San Diego CA 92103). Interested new members must attend the New Member Orientation meeting to learn more about SDWC, our upcoming season preparing for our fall concert on December 1 & 2, 2018, and to meet with Kathleen Hansen, our Artistic Director, to assess your ability to match pitch.

Voices: Stronger than Silence. Louder than Hate

In a world where too often the voices of the marginalized and less empowered are silenced, in their Spring 2018 production, Voices: Stronger than Silence. Louder Than Hate,  the San Diego Women’s Chorus will showcase music from the perspectives of many different human experiences. A powerful, inspiring program that weaves together music representing the tapestry of the human experience from around the globe, the San Diego Women’s Chorus once again demonstrates why they are one of San Diego’s premier vocal ensembles with a strong commitment to their mission to inspire creativity, diversity and social action. Voices reminds us that sharing our stories is a powerful tool against oppression and hate and allows for a greater understanding of humanity.

Incorporating songs about refugees, Native Americans, anti-war protestors, a trans man discovering who he is, those fighting for civil rights, and self-discovery, Voices captures the experiences that make us all different, yet bring us together, building our own personal legacies. Voices features songs by folk activists Pete Seeger, Holly Near, music from the popular Broadway shows “Hamilton” and “Fun Home,” pop pieces by Sara Bareilles, Lady Gaga, Cyndi Lauper, and Rachel Platten, and beautiful choral compositions highlighting experiences in parts of the world like Appalachia and Brazil.
