The Kansas City Women’s Chorus anticipates their next 20 years of song and service to the KC community, as well as celebrates the work of those who have gone before. How appropriate that in this election year of 2020 we also celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote. Lifting As We Climb, honors this milestone which occurred in the US in 1920 and approximately a year earlier in Canada and England The work incorporates 3 movements: opening with the current climate of voting rights today, then looking back in celebration of the struggles women endured in order to win the right to vote, and finally looking ahead to ask how we can engage and activate real change for all women of all colors.
