SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Women's Chorus (SDWC) has served as an outlet for women to express their creativity through music for over 24 years.
The group is opening up its ranks to new members at its first rehearsal of the 2011 spring season on Sunday, Jan. 9.
SDWC is a lesbian-identified chorus that strives to entertain, educate and inspire its audience. All women are welcome to join the non-auditioned choral ensemble as long as they can match their pitch to the piano.
Chorus members will rehearse for the annual spring concert, "Our Romance," which will be held May 21-22.
Some of the songs that will be performed in the “Our Romance” concert include: “A Glee Diva Medley,” “Love Song” by Sara Bareilles, “Everything” by Michael Buble, “Love and Affection” by Joan Armitrading, “Without You” (from “Rent”) and “Constant Craving” by k.d. lang.
Another song in the program is "What About Love" from the musical "The Color Purple." The chorus believes the description of this song encompasses the spirit of the spring concert, which is about the redemptive power of love, joy, hope, tears and tenderness.
SDWC’s music speaks to varied issues such as human rights, love, world peace, religious freedom and cultural diversity. The group supports and affirms the music of women, as well as lesbian and gay composers and arrangers.
The chorus invites all women who love to sing to join the chorus.
Rehearsals are held Sundays from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Mission Hills United Church of Christ, 4070 Jackdaw St.
