Seattle Women's Chorus Wants Audiences to HEAR ME ROAR!
This first concert of the 2018-2019 season marks 15 years on stage for Seattle Women's Chorus (SWC). And SWC wants Northwest audiences to Hear Me Roar! The concert is filled with throwback favorites, pop extravaganzas, and fresh choral sounds that mark where the chorus has been...and where they are going. The music of Katy Perry ("Roar"), Melissa Etheridge ("I Run for Life") and Alicia Keys ("Superwoman") illuminate stories of strength, survival, and hope as the worlds of gospel, Broadway, and Hollywood blend together for an epic celebration. Following Aretha Franklin's passing, SWC Artistic Director Paul Caldwell made a special addition to the Hear Me Roar program. Seattle's own powerhouse vocalist Alexandria Henderson will perform the tribute.
With a new performance venue in First Hill and an additional concert in South Seattle on the schedule, SWC is reaching out to new audiences this season. Tickets to the performances are $25-$48 and available at SeattleChoruses.org or via the phone at (206) 388-1400.
