Changing Hearts and Minds Through Harmony
Proud member of
SWC is pleased and proud to announce...
A Gala Best Practices Chorus adheres to administrative improvement with a set of best practices which are part of a chorus culture that can survive transitions in chorus leadership in order to support the stability and long-term sustainability of a chorus.
By taking these steps we have shown that we take the governance of our chorus seriously and are investing in our future. This will ensure our long-term health and survival!
Many thanks to Lily Andrews, Jeanie Schultz, and Claudia St. John for their efforts in bringing this distinction to fruition.
Our next virtual concert, Singing for Change, will be held on May 1 & 2 on our YouTube Channel, look for future announcements with more details soon!
we have just been honored with the distinction of a Gala Best Practices Chorus!!
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.
