We are thrilled to share the news, just announced in the press, that WomenSing has been awarded the 2010 national CHORUS AMERICA/ASCAP ALICE PARKER AWARD. This award “honors Alice Parker’s career that has spanned almost six decades and has been devoted to the creation of works for the human voice. This award will annually recognize a chorus for programming significant recently composed music that expands the mission of the chorus and challenges the chorus’s audience in a new way. The award is designed to recognize choruses that may not typically emphasize or include the performance of new music but have chosen to stretch themselves to present some of this repertoire.”

This award affirms our contribution to the choral literature for women’s voices through our Youth Inspiring Youth project
