By Rise Up Chorus (other events)

Join Rise Up Chorus and friends in this concert celebrating the wealth and variety of music by African American composers. Special guest appearance by the incredible J. Donald Dumpson!

Music is more than just something that we "do."  Music is a deep part of who we are.  Music is personal, yet it is communal.  It brings people together in a way that nothing else on earth can do.  Yet, so many musical experiences fall short of building community.  So often it's not done in a way where there is a place for everyone and all are welcome.  The name "Rise Up Chorus" came from the idea of a phoenix "rising from the ashes."  We reimagined the traditional community chorus or children's chorus and have developed a musical experience with a focus on our musical community.
