GC Women's World choir to perform

Women's World Choir to perform Sunday at Sauder Concert Hall

GOSHEN

The Goshen College Women’s World Music Choir will conclude its spring break tour with a “home concert” in the Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

The choir will perform songs in 10 different languages and from places including Yemen, Iraq, New Zealand, Mali, South Africa, Spain, Russia, the American South and Appalachia. There will be several opportunities during the program for the audience to join the choir in song.

“Many of the songs in the tour’s repertoire celebrate the community created by women at important times in their lives — sung lullabies, marriage, standing up for one’s own individuality, recognizing the strength in the community of sisters surrounding them,” said Deb Brubaker, professor of music and director of the Women’s World Music Choir.

The concert is open to the public. A donation will be taken to help cover tour costs.

The Goshen College Women’s World Music Choir was formed in the spring of 2004. Its goals are to discover and perform music of many cultures, both national and international, particularly indigenous cultures. According to GC staff, the choir “also serves to highlight the role of women in these cultures, celebrating the unique spirit and energy that women bring to the world as creators, sustainers and disrupters of life and culture.”

The choir features the following members: (Soprano I) Anika Baumgartner, Breanna Bloom, Prashansa Dickson, Miranda Earnhart, Kate Friesen, Maddie Gerig, Emily Grimes, Sadie Gustafson-Zook, Christina Hofer, Sara Klassen, Olivia Ressler and Sarah Toews; (Soprano II) Hannah Bachman, Brianne Brenneman, Brynn Godshall, Cecilia Lapp Stoltzfus, Emma Koop Liechty, Drea Mast, Rachel Mast, Alisa Murray, Cara Paden, Dona Park, Becky Snider and Halle Steingass; (Alto I) Emma Caskey, Dominique Chew, Annette Conrad, Katrina Evans, Naomi Gross, Laura Hochstetler, Sarah Hofkamp, Katie McKinnell, Kelly Miller, Malinda Slabaugh, Sam Weaver, Emily Vogt and Ardy Woodward; (Alto II) Ellen Conrad, Jieun Han, Mary Hiebert-White, Laura Miller, Anna Nafziger, Morgan Short, Grace Weaver, Maggie Weaver, Elizabeth Woodworth and Madeleine Yoder.
