Seattle Women's Chorus Presents LEGENDS OF ROCK!
Seattle Women's Chorus (SWC) wraps their 2018-2019 season with one big blowout concert at Benaroya Hall on April 28 at 4pm. Legends of Rock is a loud proud ode to the trailblazing singer-songwriters who weren't afraid to raise their voices and make a scene. Eighteen indomitable women are represented in song; women like Tina Turner, Janis Joplin and Carly Simon who erupted onto the mainstream rock scene. They blew a hole through the glass ceiling that generations of women rockers like Patti Smith, Joan Jett, Alanis Morissette, Florence Welch and Debbie Harry have continued to soar through.
Local musical treasure Sarah Rudinoff is the special guest artist. She is joined on stage by Season 6 "The Voice" contestant Ayesha "Musicbox" Brooks. Rudinoff, Brooks and SWC are partnering to raise funds for Rain City Rock Camp scholarships, together their contributions will offset tuition for girls and gender non-conforming individuals of diverse backgrounds.
SWC is performing a benefit concert to support CADA (Citizens Against Domestic and Sexual Abuse) on April 20 in Langley, WA. Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets.
Tickets to Benaroya Hall Seattle performances are $15-$65 and available at www.seattlechoruses.org or over the phone at (206) 388-1400. The Seattle area box office is open Monday through Friday, 11:00AM-6:00pm
