We Make More Than Music Here:
A joint benefit concert with The Women's Chorus and Voices Rising
Saturday, March 9, 2019
On Saturday, March 9th, three Boston area women's choruses come together to raise their collective voices and raise funds for women experiencing poverty and homelessness.
The Women's Chorus is a newly formed ensemble of singers who come from Boston area women's shelters and the Women's Lunch Place. Together with Boston's Voices Rising and Arlington's Cantilena, singers from all three groups will perform "We Make More Than Music Here," a variety of uplifting songs featuring a combined chorus of more than 120 singers joining in harmony, solidarity, and community.
The "We Make More Than Music Here" benefit concert supports local women experiencing homelessness.
All are welcome to attend the performance at 4:00 p.m. at First Parish Unitarian Universalist of Arlington, 630 Mass. Ave, Arlington, MA 02476. The venue is accessible.
Suggested donation is $20 per person. Tickets will be available at the door 30 minutes prior to the performance. Proceeds will go to the Women's Lunch Place and The Women's Chorus.
