General Description

Womansong is Asheville’s oldest and largest women’s community chorus. Womansong performances are known for their high energy, pure entertainment, and unusual variety. The chorus’s eclectic repertoire includes songs from around the world as well as our own backyard, with several pieces composed by Womansong members. Lively accompaniment is provided by a variety of instrumentalists along with dancing and drumming. Womansong’s music and community efforts are grounded in the common spirit of women working and singing together. The chorus proclaims unity and honors cultural diversity with songs that celebrate many themes in women’s lives – empowerment, spirituality, healing, and humor. Proceeds from Womansong concerts support its New Start Fund.










Racial Justice

Affirming the rights of ALL people and demonstrating care and respect for everyone are key to Womansong performances and to our choir. Our shared, national history of white supremacy and horrific violence against black people, LGBTQ folks, native communities, women, and many other groups is at the heart of the civil unrest we’re experiencing. As Sweet Honey in the Rock sings, “Until the killing of black men, black mothers’ sons is as important as the killing of white men, white mothers’ sons,” we cannot rest. Until freedom comes for all of us, every one of us, then we who believe in freedom cannot rest. Right now, the most important chorus is the chorus of voices demanding justice. Womansong joins this call for justice.
