“We rise again in the faces of our children. We rise again in the voices of our song!”
Join TCGMC with Guest Artistic Director Jane Ramseyer Miller* for RISE UP – a concert celebrating the power of people to change the world!
RISE UP includes music of civil rights movements from around the world that have inspired our activism today, as well as music from current movements including Glory from the movie Selma, Still I Rise from the poetry of Maya Angelou, the powerful Til It Happens to You , and singers from the Twin Cities’ Women’s Choir performing I Can’t Keep Quiet from the 2017 Women’s March.
The concert features the Minnesota premiere of Seven Last Words of the Unarmed, a 14-minute choral work in 7 movements, based on the final words of seven unarmed black men who died at the hands of authority figures. A powerful and emotional composition, Seven Last Words of the Unarmed will be conducted by special guest Steve Milloy**.
Let your voice ring out in 2018 to confront the rhetoric of hate and fear, and create a world where all voices are valued!
*Jane Ramseyer-Miller is Artistic Director of One Voice Mixed Chorus, Minnesota’s GLTBA chorus and currently serves as Artistic Director of GALA Choruses.
**Steve Milloy is the Artistic Director of Cincinnati Men’s Chorus. He is also the Music director of the Martin Luther King Coalition Chorale and artistic director of the Diverse City Youth Chorus in Cincinnati, Ohio.
