Opus 31 - Sing, Perform, Affirm, Empower

What does inclusion look like in a women’s choir? The directors of Twin Cities-based Her Voice Productions discuss their efforts to affirm and empower the diverse voices of women through choral performance. In this opus, executive director Elisa Olson and artistic directors Janice Hunton and Randi Grundahl Rexroth explore the inherently political nature of their work. Garrett and Scott recount their respective relationships with choral music and Christmas in the prelude. This opus concludes with two performances by Her Voice Productions’ Encore ensemble!
