KANSAS CITY WOMEN’S CHORUS 2018-19 CONCERT SEASON
Our 19th season is not to be missed! LUNACY in October will have you howling at the night with visions of spirits and mad scientists under the Halloween moon. We celebrate the spirit of the season in December and the SECRET SANTAS whose good deeds help to make the holidays a bit more merry. Also in December, join our small ensemble Heartsong for Lessons & Carols, an event of MUSIC ON TROOST. We round out the season in April at the historic Folly Theater with UNSUNG, featuring a suite of seven songs written about seven women who helped shape society: Susan B. Anthony, Queen Lili’uokalani, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and more.

In the wake of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, this program is a powerful reminder of the groundbreaking women who led the way in the fight for equality and the furthering of women’s rights.
This performance is made possible in part due to a grant from the Metzler-Copaken Initiative to expand the arts at the Folly Theater.
