Date: August 17, 2014
Category: Community Choirs
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
The Indianapolis Women's Chorus uses song and harmony to enable each woman to grow personally, musically, and within her community. By listening, we learn to blend. By celebrating the uniqueness of each voice, we create a plural voice of amazing sound. With this, the Women's Chorus seeks common musical experiences with women of all races, faiths, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender expressions.
We explore and share a wide range of music, from the contemplative sounds of traditional sacred songs to unusual rhythms from other cultures to rounds and chants from the women's music movement, to Broadway and pop/rock. We have even performed original works written by our own members.
The Women's Chorus is generally made up of about 30-40 singers. It also has a small ensemble, Sapphonia, which performs additional numbers.
In addition to our concerts, we have performed at many other locations and events in the community including the Indiana Women's Prison, the Madame (C.J.) Walker Theatre, the RCA Tennis Championships, and at Indiana Fever basketball games.
