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 next year!
Sarah Grace Graves Wins 2015 Mary Bussman Emerging Female Composer Contest
The Twin Cities Women's Choir is pleased to announce the winner of the 2015 Mary Bussman Emerging Female Composer contest. Sarah Grace Graves, who began her formal composition studies at Rice University in 2014, is already making a name for herself in the music world. TCWC will debut her original composition, chiaroscuro, at its first major concert of the 2015-2016 season: the annual "Illuminations" celebration.
ENCORE! Performance in the Guthrie Theater's Production of The Events
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.
