San Diego Women's Chorus Announces Inspiring Spring Program,  “Voices: Stronger than Silence. Louder Than Hate.”

The San Diego Women's Chorus (SDWC), one of San Diego's premier all-female vocal ensembles, announces its spring production entitled "Voices: Stronger than Silence. Louder Than Hate." This exciting and timely concert is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 4:00 PM, at The Performing Arts Center at Lincoln High School in San Diego, California.

This program's aim "is to weave together music representing the tapestry of the human experience from around the globe," shares Artistic Director, Kathleen Hansen. The music will illustrate a variety of perspectives from different human experiences, "particularly in a world where too often the voices of the marginalized and less empowered are silenced."

Exhilarated from recent performances at the California Democratic Convention and with pop sensation Demi Lovato, Artistic Director Kathleen Hansen continues, "In the spirit of SDWC's core values, "Voices" reminds us that sharing our stories is a powerful tool against oppression and hate and allows for a greater understanding of humanity."

"Voices" will feature music from popular Broadway shows "Hamilton" and "Fun Home," pop pieces by Lady Gaga, Sara Bareilles, Rachel Platten, and Cyndi Lauper, pieces by folk activists Pete Seeger and Holly Near, and beautiful choral compositions highlighting experiences of those in Appalachia and Brazil.

By incorporating songs of refugees, Native Americans, anti-war protestors, a trans man discovering who he is, civil rights activists, and the human experience of self-discovery, "Voices" aims to capture experiences that make us all different yet bring us together.

Tickets for "Voices" start at $20 for general admission, $18 for youth, senior, and military and are available via Ticketleap at https://sdwc.ticketleap.com/voices. VIP tickets are also available for $30 and include seating in a reserved premium section. Same day tickets will be available at the door, starting at $25 for general admission and $20 for youth, senior, and military.

San Diego Women's Chorus welcomes members from the vastly diverse LGBTQ and straight-ally communities and strives to continually demonstrate its strong commitment to its mission to inspire creativity, diversity, and social action.
