WOMANSONG’S SPRING CONCERT “We Are One” – June 1 & 2 Get your tickets now!
Womansong, Asheville’s largest and longest-running women’s community chorus, invites you to its spring concert, “We Are One,” at Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church on Friday, June 1st at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 2nd at 3 p.m.
This is the inaugural concert of Womansong’s new directors, Althea Gonzalez (Artistic Director) and Amanda Carroll (Assistant Artistic Director).
Althea says, “Now is a critical time in our nation to celebrate unity within diversity, to be bold in our acknowledgement and appreciation of all people. Our songs powerfully remind us that everyone is worthy.”
The concert will include songs from Sweet Honey in the Rock, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry, as well as two pieces arranged and composed by Womansong accompanist, Lytingale. In true Womansong style, the audience will also have plenty of opportunities to laugh and sing along.
Concerts help fund the choir’s New Start Program — helping local women escape domestic abuse, avoid eviction, hold onto jobs, and attend regional community colleges.
Tickets are on sale now! $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12.
They are available from any Womansong member, online at www.womansong.org or at the door.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
