Where in the world is the Sacramento Women's chorus?
We are still here! We are following health and safety guidelines and until we can come together to rehearse and perform for you again, we remain committed to our purpose.
We are holding online small group meetings, and all member fun evenings. Our music professionals are teaching us music and vocal techniques to become better singers. Our Board of Directors and Team Leads are planning and exploring ways to sustain our vital organization for the present and for the future.
We understand that our world is suffering physically, spiritually, and economically. The Sacramento Women’s Chorus remains dedicated to continuing our message of peace, justice, and inclusion. We will use this time for growth and introspection and be stronger for it.
We are missing you, our audience, and are so grateful for all your support in the past. Our 81 members miss singing together fiercely; we hope that soon we will make music together that will be a part of the healing process. Until then, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our concerts originally scheduled for October and December 2020.
You can help us mitigate the loss of revenue due to the cancellation of our 2020 concert season by donating here on our website.

In 2021, the Sacramento Women's Chorus will, once again, join the GALA festival. GALA Choruses leads the North American LGBTQ+ choral movement, cultivating the artistic development of 10,000 singers from more than 190 choruses in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. GALA Festival is the quadrennial international celebration of the LGBTQ+ choral movement. At Festival 2021, more than 6000 diverse singers representing over 100 choruses and ensembles will take over downtown Minneapolis for 5 powerful days of concerts, festivities, and community-building.
The Sacramento Women's Chorus created a positive and commanding presence on an international scale with our attendance at the GALA in Denver, CO., July 2016. We are already preparing for our participation in the 2021 GALA Festival. We made a fantastic impression on all of the participating choruses in Denver and were one of three, out of approximately 200 choruses in the festival, asked to sing in the Show Stopper Finale Concert during the closing ceremony for the festival.
Sacramento Women’s Chorus builds community through song.
We sing to honor peace, justice and social equality, and to celebrate the lives of all women.
We strive for musical excellence as we give voice to women’s hopes and dreams,
opening hearts and minds through harmony.
We Love to Sing!
With a humble beginning of less than a dozen singers, the SWC has grown to an over 75 voice, all inclusive, 501c3 nonprofit organization. We strive for musical excellence while giving voice to women’s hopes and dreams, opening hearts and minds through harmony.
Since its first performance in 1987 at a fundraiser for a women’s wheelchair basketball team, the SWC has become recognized as an important part of the Sacramento art and activist community. The SWC sings at events that focus on equality, peace, justice, women’s issues, and LGBTQ pride. In January 2017, SWC had the honor of singing from the steps of the Capitol in the Sacramento Women’s March.
Women searching for a musical home join the SWC to sing pieces that blend meaning with fun, only to find that they have become part of a remarkable, welcoming community. The SWC attracts a diverse community by combining compelling social issues with inspiring and entertaining performances. The women of the SWC are kindred souls singing in a warm, safe, and inviting environment.
