Lift Every Voice — Her Song recognizes and celebrates the achievements of women who transcended obstacles and barriers to raise their voices against injustice, create great art and make new discoveries about our planet. From Nina Simone’s “I Wish I Knew” to the Eurythmics’ “Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves,” the Boston Children’s Chorus presents a program filled with inspiring stories of women’s empowerment. The centerpiece of this concert, Cecila MacDowell’s Everyday Wonders: The Girl From Aleppo, tells the extraordinary story of Nujeen Mustafa, a Kurdish teenager with cerebral palsy forced to flee from Syria as a refugee — finding herself in an inhospitable, brutal and often inhumane world. Guest artist Melinda Doolittle, will perform with the choir as well as singing her own hit song “That’s Life.” The concert concludes with BCC’s collective voices performing Hosier’s “Nina Cried Power” and Audra Day’s “Rise Up’” – moving anthems that encourage us all to re-examine who holds power, and recognize the strength of unified voices in striving for a more equal society. Don’t miss this inspiring and empowering concert at Boston’s Boch Center Wang Theatre.
