Women's Voices Chorus

With a mixture of folk, pop, and classical, the Women's Voices Chorus will be performing Cradle of Fire, Women's Experiences of War on Sunday, Jan. 26 at the University United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill. This 50-voiced choir has been singing together for over a decade, and stands as the only classical, community-based women's chorus in the Triangle. This performance is one of great significance, marking their 10th year, so they made sure the piece chosen reflected importance. Out of 18 programs, Cradle of Fire stood out as the most intense, bringing together elements of both pain and beauty. The Women's Voices Choir originally sang this on May 18, 1996. It centers around Michael Isaacson's arrangements of five Holocaust songs performed in English, Yiddish and Hebrew. There will be some variation to the original program, including the addition of "Johnny's Gone A-Sailing," arranged by Ruth Watson Henderson, and a setting of Christina Rossetti's "Out In the Rain," by Brian Galante will also be performed. A composition on the blessing of peace will be sung, along with favorites like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy." The show begins at 4 p.m. 150 E. Franklin St. 932-5455. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children.
