Portland’s own Social Justice Choir, the Phoenix Chorale, will present a free concert on May 6, 2017 at the Cathedral of St. Luke, 143 State Street in Portland, ME at 3 PM. This spring concert features guest performers and speakers from the immigrant community, songs from African and Western cultures, and a 30-voice chorus of singers committed to social justice.
Each year, Phoenix Chorale’s Annual Benefit Concert is performed to financially support a partner organization that works to enhance Maine communities and environment through innovative social programs. 100% of concert proceeds are donated to the partner organization.
Phoenix Chorale is proud to be partnering with In Her Presence, a local organization that offers programs to embrace, empower, and enrich the lives of immigrant women. In Her Presence provides language assistance, health and wellness classes, and professional counseling to encourage immigrant women to create meaningful lives and find employment in the US. In Her Presence helps immigrant women and girls find ways to cope with stress and feel confident in this new country, while balancing the unique and powerful cultural identity of each woman.
Though admission to our concert is free, we are pledging 100% of concert donations to In Her Presence. Please join us for an afternoon of song, enrichment, and community, and help us support the work of this inspiring local organization.
