Womansong CD Release Concert: “Turn the World Around”
May 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm10.00$
Womansong – Asheville’s largest and longest-running women’s community chorus — is releasing its new CD, Turn the World Around, in a performance Saturday, May 20th at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville, One Edwin Place, Asheville 28801. Tickets cost $10 and will go on sale April 17 from Womansong members and at womansong.org. This event will sell out, so buy tickets early.
Womansong will perform selections from the CD and lead a lively community sing-along. The concert will be followed by a dessert party with free refreshments and an opportunity to purchase CDs and learn about Womansong’s New Start Program. Come celebrate with us!
The new CD – Womansong’s first release since 2012 — inspires us to celebrate sisterhood, share joy, and transform the world. It includes live recordings of audience favorites such as Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and True Colors, and uplifting songs by women composers including The Righteous Mothers, Annie Lennox, and Womansong’s own Lytingale.
A portion of the proceeds from all Womansong events and product sales go to Womansong’s New Start Program. Since 1988, this program has assisted women in our community to achieve greater self-sufficiency by providing small grants to fill in the gap when other short-term assistance is not available and offering community college scholarships to women in need. In the past ten years, the New Start Program has given more than $125,000 to women in Western North Carolina.
