WOMEN’s CHOIR PGH
EMAIL INVITE TO JOIN:
Please forward to any woman-identifying person who may be interested in joining us!
The #MeToo campaign has shown us how many of our friends, colleagues and family have experienced abuse and trauma. While revealing our darker truths, it is time to simultaneously come together as a community in Pittsburgh for healing, joy, and self-care. It occurred to me that many cultures and communities have healing rituals built around communal song. There is something very powerful about women coming together in this way. Let’s sing it out. I am inviting all women (that includes anyone woman identifying) to join us in a Women's Choir.
Join us as we hold both sorrow and joy together in our voices. We are singing for fun, as well as for healing and togetherness. We will learn mostly by ear and sing songs from many times and places in two, three, or four parts. No singing experience is necessary! We already have some songs we are learning, but please feel free to bring song ideas. We are open to other people directing/teaching songs as well.
The Choir will be meeting every other Tuesday from 7-830 pm in East Liberty. Please email email@example.com for details.
We will continue meeting every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at the East Liberty Presbyterian Church from 7-830pm(Joing the email list for confirmation of dates/cancellations). The East Liberty Presbyterian Church is at 116 S Highland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206. There should be street parking, or there is a lot behind the library and Ace Hotel. You enter the church at the S Highland entrance, and sign in at the desk. To get to our meeting place, make a right at the front desk, follow that short hallway to the end and make your first left into the small chapel.
There are pews and chairs there for us to use but anyone else who needs any other accommodations please let me know. It is wheelchair accessible. You might want to bring water, otherwise it is just our bodies and our voices. We usually warm up a bit and then get right to singing! There is a piano there, I can get it unlocked if anyone wants to play!
PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org or text me (Jenna) at 973-271-3518 if you need a ride, accommodations, or have any pressing questions!
