Recognizing the power of music to unite and uplift, the Virginia Women’s Chorus is presenting the 3rd annual Women Against Violence concert Saturday, September 29. This concert, entitled “IMAGINE”, will feature a wide variety of music – folk, pop, classical, and more – shared by musicians from the university and area communities. The International Rescue Committee (IRC) will receive profits from this benefit concert.

Several popular a cappella groups, solo musicians, and the Virginia Glee Club will be joining the Chorus in offering reflective and uplifting music.

Contemporary popular music favorites include Imagine, specially arranged for this concert by the Director of the Virginia Women’s Chorus, Katherine (KaeRenae) Mitchell. Singers from the university and the community will raise their voices in the collaborative gospel piece, Still I Rise. This finale, based on the poem by poet laureate Maya Angelou, salutes the strength and determination to persevere through adversity and life’s difficulties.

We hope to see you Saturday, September 29, at 8 PM in McLeod Hall. Be a part of this annual event at UVA and walk away inspired. Imagine all the people living for today, living life in peace, and sharing all the world!
