The March of the Women: Talk and singalong for IWD 2021
When: March 8 2021
Where: Virtual, United Kingdom
All profits from this event will go to an International Women's Day's Chosen Charity: World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), the largest international youth movement dedicated to girls and young women.
Celebrate International Women’s Day with an informative talk and interactive singalong of the momentous and empowering hymn from 1911, The March of the Women.
Learn about the historical context of the piece and its composer and suffragette, Ethel Smyth, and feel connected through singing together online.
Join choral conductor Laurel Neighbour, who will teach and lead us through a singalong of the piece, and composer Janet Oates who will guide us through an engaging talk.
In the words of The March of the Women, let’s “March, march, many as one, shoulder to shoulder and friend to friend”, and celebrate women’s creativity together.
Don’t worry if you’re not an experienced singer as, unfortunately, we won’t be able to sing live together because of time-lag on Zoom, so you will be asked to stay on-mute and sing along at your own comfort.
Sashes, placards and white, purple and green costumes welcome!
Attendees will be emailed sheet music and words in advance of the talk.
