Showing Support Through Song: Local Chorus's Summer Concert Benefits UNC Lineberger
The Women's Voices Chorus (WVC) held its summer concert on Saturday, July 10, 2010 to benefit UNC Lineberger. Donations totaling close to 2,000 were raised to support research for women’s cancers.
Titled “Strong, Triumphant Women - A Concert to Fight Cancer," the concert featured traditional shape-note hymns, classical works by Mendelssohn and Pablo Casals, and rousing folk songs, among others.
"The music of this concert reflects the strength, grace, and wisdom of all the women who have faced cancer,” said WVC artistic director Allan Friedman (pictured right). “Women's Voices Chorus is proud to perform this concert in honor of these women and their families."
