 The West Hartford Women’s Chorale’s multi-generational event will be held at King Philip Middle School in West Hartford on March 16.


The West Hartford Women’s Chorale is happy to announce the return of its Festival of Women’s Voices on March 16, 2024.

After four years, the WHWC will be bringing back the Festival, a multigenerational, educational event that brings together female singers from adult and high school choirs for an afternoon of learning and performing with a guest female composer. The event will be held at King Philip Middle School, West Hartford.

All are invited to the collaborative choir concert at 4:30 p.m. A Free Will donation of $15 is requested.

Dr. Rosephanye Powell will be the guest composer for the day. Dr. Powell has been hailed as one of America’s premier composers of solo and choral music. She currently serves as Professor of Voice at Auburn University and travels worldwide presenting lectures, providing song demonstrations, and serving as a workshop clinician and conductor. In 2009, Dr. Powell received the “Living Legend Award” presented by California State University African Diaspora Sacred Music Festival in Los Angeles.

This year the WHWC has partnered with Prudence Crandall Center. For over 45 years, Prudence Crandall Center has been a leader in our state’s efforts to reduce the devastating impact of domestic violence on the lives of victims, their children, and our community.

Individual donations and a percentage of door proceeds will be shared with their organization.

The WHWC can host this event thanks to a generous grant from Chorale Arts New England, Alfred Nash Patterson Grant for 2024.

The West Hartford Women’s Chorale, a non-audition, women’s choir, endeavors to enrich the community’s cultural life. It has provided young artists performance opportunities, as well as support for an annual student musician scholarship.
