The Kansas City Women’s Chorus loves to sing, and we wish to move ourselves and our audiences in ways that inspire through performance, embrace diversity, and advocate social justice. Our 17th season promises to do just that as we seek peace in our diversity, and honor the heritage of brave women in our past who have blazed the trails for our future. For the Kansas City Women’s Chorus, Simply Singing is Not Enough.

In Maya Angelou’s poem, Amazing Peace, she refers to “. . . Christmas time, a halting of hate time,” and encourages all of us to “look beyond complexion and see community.” Join the Kansas City Women’s Chorus as we sing about Peace from a variety of cultural and spiritual traditions. Included in this concert is the premiere of our newly commissioned work by Anthony Maglione entitled, We, Angels and Mortals, based on an excerpt from Maya Angelou’s Amazing Peace.

Women have been changing the world throughout history. March is Women’s History Month, and we will sing of our heritage, our heroines and our hope for the future. The Kansas City Girls’ Choir will be our special guests during the first act. The entire second act of the concert is devoted to a musical “event” by Eric Lane Barnes entitled, We Can Do It! which honors the women who took on nontraditional roles during World War II. We will sing of the Rosie the Riveters, Wendy the Welders, and many others, and the doors these women opened for us today.
