SEATTLE WOMEN’S CHORUS

Legends of Rock

Decades ago, women like Janis Joplin and Carly Simon erupted onto the mainstream rock scene, blowing a hole through the stage wall that generations of women rockers have burst through. This concert is a loud and proud ode to the trailblazing singer-songwriters who weren’t afraid to raise their voices and make a scene: Patti Smith, Joan Jett, Alanis Morissette, Florence Welch, Tina Turner, Debbie Harry, and more groundbreaking artists.

Summer of ‘69

Woodstock. The moon landing. Vietnam. Stonewall. In the summer of 1969, current events churned into a psychedelic era of rebellion and change. SMC transports us back to this vibrant year through the chart-topping, culture-defining music that blared through turntables and transistor radios. Joining with a coalition of LGBTQ choruses across the country, we also present a thrilling new musical theater work that tells the stories of the Stonewall riots and the birth of the struggle to live life out loud, a message that still resonates today.
