Antioch College will host a community sing and concert with MUSE, a Cincinnati-based women’s choir, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 3 in the South Gym on the College campus. Admission will be by donation of cash or non-perishable food items, which will benefit the community food pantry at the United Methodist Church.
The concert and community sing is a kick-off to Women’s History Month. Music selections include anthems to women’s, LGBT and social justice causes. The concert will feature two 45-minute sets in which MUSE will sing, then lead audience members in a group sing. Local artists Melissa Heston, Mary White and Wheels will join MUSE for various numbers.
Founded in 1984 by Cathy Roma, MUSE is a women’s choir dedicated to musical excellence and social change. The group includes women of varied ages, races and ethnicities with a range of musical abilities, political interests and life experiences. MUSE commissions and seeks out music composed by women, pieces written to enhance the sound of women’s voices and songs that honor the enduring spirit of all peoples. Their performances strive to entertain, inspire, motivate, heal and create a feeling of community with the audience.
