A community chorus, The Brooklyn Women’s Chorus was formed in October 1997 by Park Slope resident and musician, Bev Grant. With a repertoire ranging from South African freedom songs to socially relevant songs by contemporary American songwriters like Garth Brooks, Jackson Browne, Pat Humphries and Bev Grant, song topics range from freedom and justice to peace, resistance and women’s labor history. Their albums include Brooklyn Women’s Chorus and the Power of Song, and I Will Sing, which was recorded live at Tribeca PAC in 2014. The Brooklyn Women’s Chorus is its own sanctuary for women who are seeking community and a safe place to find and raise their voice in song.
