December 4, 2020 -- The Santa Monica College Concert Chorale and Chamber Choir will present “Nevertheless, She Persisted,” a free webcast concert on December 18.

Conducted by Jeremiah Selvey, the concert features virtually recorded performances by the chorale and choir with guest Choral-Scholars-In-Residence Chorosynthesis Singers.

The choral event celebrates the 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and "reflects the contemporary re-sparking of movements for racial justice and gender equality," concert organizers said.

The concert showcases the voices of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color)
women "from the early 20th-century suffragists to present-day civil rights activists who changed the world through advocacy and composing music."

The Choral Scholars in Residence, co-directed by guest conductor Wendy Moy, will premiere Melissa Dunphy’s "Amendment: Righting Our Wrongs."

Composed for soprano-alto-tenor-bass (SATB) choir and cello, the work "juxtaposes the voices of the founding fathers with the voices of minority women fighting for universal voting rights."

The performance will also include a collage work about "racial (in)justice co-composed by members of the SMC Chamber Choir and Chorosynthesis Singers."

The concert is sponsored in part by the SMC Chairs of Excellence Grantand generous individual donors.

Donations to support the SMC Choirs are welcome and may be sent to the SMC Foundation. For detals click here.

The concert takes place online at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 18.
