2015-2016 Season Highlights

Our first-ever Singathon was a success!

Thanks to your support, we've raised nearly $20,000 in our first-ever Singathon fundraiser. That will go a long way to helping us remain financially accessible to all women and girls who want to sing with TCWC and the Twin Cities Girls Choir. We're excited to do it again!

ENCORE! Performance in the Guthrie Theater's Production of The Events

ENCORE!, the small a cappella ensemble of the Twin Cities Women’s Choir, was one of the local choirs to perform in a production of The Events at the Guthrie Theater, on October 1 and 2.

The Events, by Scottish dramatist David Greig, was written as a response to the shooting attack on a youth camp in Norway in 2011 that took 77 lives. It seeks to explore how the community searches for compassion, forgiveness, peace and understanding in the wake of an unspeakable act. The play sets the anguish and pain of a survivor of a mass shooting against the consoling presence of a choir.

A different community choir sang at each performance. ENCORE! sang in the final preview and on opening night. In addition to singing throughout the 90-minute play, ENCORE! presented one of its own arrangements before the shows began.

See press for ENCORE! and The Events.
