Do you love to sing?
Are you passionate about social and environmental change?
Interested in joining a group of dynamic women dedicated to the fight for justice?
Audition for SongRise, DC’s all women social justice a cappella group!
About You: We are seeking talented women of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities and experience levels in the DC/VA/MD area to join our singing group. No prior experience is required, but a strong passion for social justice and community engagement is a necessity.
About SongRise: We are a group of singers who offer up our talents at community events, fundraisers, rallies, protests, farmer’s markets, civil rights celebrations, DC voting rights events, arts showcases, schools… you name it! We focus on raising awareness around a variety of social justice issues on both the global and local levels and supporting groups that are doing this work.
We practice one night per week and perform 2-4 times per month, depending on our members’ availability and invitations. We also like to have fun together, whether going to karaoke, volunteering, or attending like-minded musical performances about once a month. As an all-volunteer-run group, members also spend 1-3 hours per week organizing gigs, arranging songs, and other administrative tasks.
For more information about SongRise, please visit our website and come check us out live at our next gig: SongRiseDC.blogspot.com.
