The Rising of the Women is the Rising of Us All
 
On Saturday, March 2 at 8:00 PM, MUSE, Cincinnati’s Women’s Choir, the Walnut Hills High School Women’s Ensemble and the Grand Rapids Women’s Chorus will unite their voices to celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day with compositions by eight living women composers, with three women conductors on the podium, and three wonderful women’s choirs.
 
Through the songs, the audience will get a glimpse into women’s history as you learn the stories of daring women who’ve gone before us and the struggles of women to achieve equality and justice in the hard fought battles for peace, for bread, and for roses. The poetry and texts, especially the many by women, express the emotions, desires, and dreams of those who have gone before us.
 
MUSE will also perform the world premiere of “Forever Changed,” music by Elizabeth Haskins, Professor of Music at Wilmington College with text by Teresa Schrieber Werth.  Nearly 150 choir members will join together for two pieces and each ensemble will perform alone as well.       
 
Women’s history is inextricably tied to those who have lived before us. To sing songs that have carried women through hardship and struggle, though not necessarily popular today, are part of a tradition that recognizes their place on the continuum of souls who strive for a more peace-filled world.  “All our mothers sang before us, all our children sing the chorus, come on sisters lift your voices, carry it on, carry it on.”
