We are shocked and saddened by the tragic news of the death of Kim Stevenson. Since joining the Twin Cities Women's Choir five years ago, Kim has been a bright spot in our community with her talent and her spirit. Many women have remarked how welcome Kim made them feel when they joined the choir. She generously shared her passionate enthusiasm for music, kids, scooters, the Lynx, and the Twin Cities with all of us. We already miss her terribly. We offer our condolences to her friends and family, and we honor her memory with song.
As a member of our community, Kim was a sister to us, so we share "Sister My Sister" in our remembrance of her. Have a listen.
This ENCORE! performance of "Freeway of Love" features Kim at her best, belting out an awesome solo on a fun classic.
We're excited to announce that we raised $5065 on Give to the Max Day!
With our board match, that's $10,065 we have to put towards expanding the library of choral music for women's voices through our commissioning program, and towards ensuring that any woman who wants to sing with us can do so regardless of financial means.
We can't thank you enough – our community of singers, staff, volunteers, friends, family, and fans – for your generous support.
Congratulations to Susanna Payne-Passmore of Havertown, PA on winning the 2013 Mary Bussman Emerging Female Composer Choral Competition with her song, Shine. The world premiere of Shine will be at our annual Illuminations concerts on Saturday, December 7, 2013.
