On May 4 & 5, 2013 the San Diego Women's Chorus, with special guests The Black Storytellers of San Diego, presents Still We Rise, a special concert event that offers a glimpse at women’s legacy through story and song. SDWC is excited to be working once again with special guests from the Black Storytellers of San Diego, a dynamic group of women who promote storytelling and oral tradition through education and entertainment. "Still We Rise" will borrow from the black community's rich tradition of musical expression and social awareness to provide the musical base of the program, weaving together music and spoken word to create a special, magical event. Still We Rise illustrates and illuminates how women have faced formidable barriers to equality and continue their climb to be accepted equally.

Inspirational, thoughtful, entertaining and moving, Still We Rise weaves together story and song to provide a glimpse into women's struggles and triumphs. SDWC will perform songs that speak to the universal themes of struggle, triumph, hope and love including "What About Love" from the musical The Color Purple, the African-American gospel "Keep Yo' Lamps," an homage to Martin Luther King Jr in "Only Light, Only Love," the gorgeous classically-inspired Latin piece "Nigra Sum," and the Latin American folk solg "Duerme Negrito."Other show-stopping numbers include Rosephannye Powell's powerful "Still I Rise" and a medly of "Girl on Fire" and "Superwoman" by Alicia Keys.

We expect this special performance to sell out, so buy your tickets early! Pre-sale tickets for Still We Rise are $15 for general admission and $12 for  Seniors/Military/Children (3-17). Children under 3 will be admitted for free, but may be required to sit on an adult's lap. Ticket prices at the door will be $20 and $15, as available. 

As part of its mission to inspire social action, SDWC will be supporting a number of organizations working to make a difference in the world. Pazzaz, Inc, a San Diego-based non-profit providing year-round targeted academic and enrichment programs to enlighten the lives of children and their families will be hosting an informational table at both performances. International Crisis Aid will be selling unique bracelets to raise money to fund its efforts to assist victims of human trafficking. Concert attendees are also encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for a Mama's Kitchen food drive.
