Women in Harmony our Nov. Concerts for a Cause

Concerts for a Cause, a new concert series at Auburn’s First Universalist Church, is proud to host Women in Harmony on Friday, November 3, 2017 at 7:30pm.
Women in Harmony (WIH) has been singing for social justice for over 25 years. This diverse group of women—gay and straight, musically sophisticated and untrained– occupies a unique niche among singing groups in Northern New England. WIH sings for unity among women, advocating social, political, and economic equality for all. Their music is culturally and stylistically varied, daring, and full of life. Songs convey the importance of connection and community, which WIH serves by providing learning opportunities for women of diverse musical backgrounds, partnering with local organizations, and promoting the work of women composers and musicians.

The program will include Holly Near’s Fired Up, Common Woman by The Righteous Mothers, Arlington and One Voice by the Wailin’ Jennys, Bound for Freedom, Swimming to the Other Side by Emma’s Revolution, and more.

Concerts for a Cause brings special concerts to the L/A community while raising money for area charities. This show will benefit the church, as well as Trinity Jubilee Center.

CFAC shows are produced by local musician and church choir director, Dave Rowe, and a dedicated group of church members.

The First Universalist Church of Auburn is located at 169 Pleasant St. (across from Dairy Joy). Parking; accessible.

Tickets are $15 at the door (cash or credit). FMI, visit www.uuconcerts.org or call 783-0461.
