SMC Choirs: 'Righting Our Wrongs'

SMC Chamber Choir & Chorosynthesis Singers, Co-Composers

"Righting Our Wrongs" is a virtually performed and recorded broadcast performance of choral music exploring the idea of human and societal reconciliation through the lenses of the LGBTQ experience intersecting unaccepting religions, of minority voices silenced or dismissed through the women's suffrage movement, and the breakdown of empathic dialogue among ideological tribal divides.
