Womansong, Asheville’s largest and longest-running women’s community chorus, invites you to its winter concert, “Be Brave – a Salute to Sheroes.” The concert will be held on A-B Tech’s main campus at the A-B Tech Conference Center, 16 Fernihurst Drive, Asheville, NC 28801, on Saturday, December 7 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, December 8 at 3 PM. You can also take part in the festive Wine & Chocolate Raffle at each performance – a chance to win premium gifts for the holiday while supporting a great cause.
This concert honors the many “sheroes” in our world: well-known public figures such as Malala, Pauli Murray, Harriet Tubman, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg who have changed history, along with everyday women who rise above life’s challenges to lead with love. The concert theme comes from our own Lytingale’s rousing new song, which encourages everyone to “Speak out your truth, let your story be told. You’ve got the power, be brave!” The concert features Annie Lennox’s anthem “Sing” and a medley of Aretha Franklin classics like “Respect”. There’s something for everyone — music to make you laugh, cry, dance, and of course, sing along.
Directed by Althea Gonzalez with Assistant Director, Katie Cilluffo, Womansong celebrates the unity, diversity, and empowerment of women through musical expression. Concerts are accessible to the hearing impaired through music sign language interpretation by Shiner Antiorio.
Our concerts and raffles help fund the operation of our nonprofit organization including the choir’s New Start Program, which provides scholarships and emergency funds to local women in need.
Concert tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children (12 and younger). Tickets go live on October 7th and are available from Womansong members and online at www.womansong.org. Raffle tickets are $25 for Wine and $10 for Chocolate, and are available online and at the door. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
