Singing to Inspire

Celebrating our 22nd Season

Still I Rise


MAY 7, 2017

"Though I have been wounded; aching heart, full of pain, still I rise, yes, still I rise..."

Join us for an afternoon of raising our voices to end violence against women at Still I Rise, a Community Conversation Concert.

The program includes a panel discussion on violence against women with James Meinert of Safe Connections, Marie Montano of the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Adrian Bracy of the YWCA, and Detective Mark Kurkowski of the St. Louis Police Department. The issue is brought to life through powerful visual art displays that include Cathy Lander-Goldberg’s Resilient Souls, the interactive Aria Rising installation by Divinemoira Studio, and a presentation of the Silent Witness exhibition sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women.

The centerpiece of the event is a chorale performance of original work written by survivors and arranged for Women’s Hope Chorale by Adam Maness. We'll round out the evening with songs of courage and triumph, in collaboration with members of Mayor Taylor and special guest Dan Rubright.
