Choir Matrix Premiere's a new composition by Melissa Dunphy

We are the Stories Choir Festival

We hosted a women's choir festival with Choir Matrix called:  "We are the Stories: women's voices marking 100 years along the broader path to universal suffrage."  We could not recognize the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment without acknowledging that not all women received the right to vote in 1920.

Singers from four choirs engaged in exploring history, panel discussion, facilitated discussion, and singing together.  The public was invited to the virtual panel discussion on Facebook Live (still available on our page)


Funded in part by the Alfred Nash Patterson Grant from Choral Arts New England. Sponsored by Consonare Choral Community, UConntabile (UConn Choirs), UConn Human Rights Institute Dodd Impact.
