Central PA Womyn's Chorus presents Keep On Moving Forward!
The mid-state’s only all-female lesbian and feminist chorus announces their Fall 2017 concerts: Keep On Moving Forward! The concerts will be given:
Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 7:30PM at the Mechanicsburg Presbyterian Church
300 E Simpson St, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055
Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017 3:00PM at the Colonial Park United Church of Christ
5000 Devonshire Rd, Harrisburg, PA 17109
As the Women’s Rights Movement approaches its 170th anniversary, gender equality continues to be an issue, even in this, the world’s leading democracy. The Chorus will present a beautiful retrospective of works commemorating voices magnifying the deepest desires for human equality. Audiences will hear pieces such as Bread and Roses, I Hear Liberty, Never Turning Back, a modern Ave Maria, and the eternally haunting Nigra Sum.
The strong resurgence of the Central Pennsylvania Womyn’s Chorus has resulted in maturity and a wonderful sound – while still staying close to roots of advocacy and inclusion. Due largely to our Peabody Conservatory-trained Director, the talented Jordan R. Markham, concerts have become an experience unlike any other here in the mid-state.
The Chorus enjoys recognition for musical excellence in a wide range of styles, including classical, folk, jazz, a cappella, rounds, show tunes and popular songs of the 20th century. We have performed across the state and nationally, notably featured singing for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf celebrating PRIDE 2017; the PA Immigrant and Refugee Women’s Network, the PA Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and as the opening act for Holly Near, with Emma’s Revolution and backup singers for Judy Collins.
Tickets are $15.00 each. A $2.00 discount will be given to concertgoers who bring in a donation of school kit essentials to benefit the Catholic Charities Immigrant and Refugee Resettlement Program. (Notebook or Ruled Paper/Pads “8.5x11”, pencils with erasers/sharpeners, pens, large erasers, school scissors, construction paper, crayon boxes, 12” rulers, pencil boxes).
