May 2015: The Strength of Women will focus on Women and Mental Health. This program will address various aspects of mental health, including songs about women helping each other get through tough times (Mae Frances and Walk With Me); women having fun together (Away Ye Merry Lassies); women growing into their own identities (You Are That by Deana Ingraham Gurney); and women seeking support from other women (Three Women and You're Not Alone). We'll also sing songs about things that make our minds feel healthy and happy, such as A Cat's a Teacher, which celebrates the joys of living with a pet; and My Salsa Garden, an upbeat song about gardening, good food, and dancing. Finally, this concert will feature the New England premiere of Lineage by Andrea Ramsey, commissioned for the 11th National Sister Singers Network Festival in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois in July 2014, which 30 Women in Harmony members attended.
