Mastersingers presents “Votes for Women: Voices for All” Concert
February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
One event on February 22 2020 at 7:30 pm
Mid-Columbia Mastersingers 4th subscription concert of the season is “Votes for Women: Voices for All” celebrating the 100th anniversary of women having the vote in the Unites States.
The program will explore the history of suffrage in the US through the voices of mostly young women composers from US. We will highlight the current state of efforts surrounding gender equality in Washington and will explore specific examples in our pre concert “Behind the Music” talk with members of our local chapter of League of Women Voters. We hope to inspire in-creased civic engagement in our community as we approach the 2020 general election and cen-sus. The lyrics of our song selections are incredibly empowering and speak for themselves in terms of highlighting the long term effects of women’s suffrage and the role of women change makers in our community.
Our treble choir is partnering with the Rolling Hills Chorus of Sweet Adelines International, and we are also partnering with the League of Women Voters of Benton and Franklin Counties.
