MUSE’s 37th Annual Spring concert will focus on Suffrage, which will cover various elements of suffrage from an inclusive perspective, and will serve to highlight voting of all sorts, including voter suppression, generational voting, and so much more, and will include a tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the legal right to vote. Music from this concert will include arrangements of "Stand Up" by Cynthia Erivo from the movie Harriet and "My Vote, My Voice, My Right" by Roy Zimmerman and Melanie Harby, as well as movements from a new commission entitled "Lifting As We Climb," a piece commissioned by the GALA Choruses Commission Consortium as a part of the Cathy Roma commissioning project, that commemorates the passing of the 19th Amendment and a call to protect the emblem of equality: the vote. This concert will also include a call to action, which will rally our communities to vote with their actions, with their mind, their dollar, and their time. 2020 is a very important election year, and this concert will serve to ignite our audience and all of Cincinnati to make their voices heard at the ballot in November 2020: it's your vote, your voice, your right!
