Experience some of the Bay Area’s finest treble choirs during this afternoon of new music-making!
This event also marks the premiere of a piece by Julia Adolphe, setting a PWC-commissioned poem by Safiya Sinclair, which will be the first work from our Trailblazers Project: a multi-year, collaborative choral project with faculty in Stanford University's Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. We celebrate the contributions of three iconic women—Harriet Tubman, Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, and Alice Paul—all of whom blazed the way toward significant American social and political change.
