Performers in the 2021-22 Performing Arts Series – Choice Shows

Resistance Revival Chorus

Where: Sauder Concert Hall

Price: $30, $25, $20

Sat, May 21st @ 7:30 pm — Sauder Concert Hall

The Resistance Revival Chorus (RRC) is a collective of more than 60 womxn (an alternative spelling of the English word “woman”) and non-binary (gender identities that are neither male nor female‍) singers who join together to breathe joy and song into the resistance, and to uplift and center womxn’s voices. Chorus members are touring musicians, film and television actors, Broadway performers, solo recording artists, gospel singers, political activists, educators, filmmakers, artists and more, representing a multitude of identities, professions, creative backgrounds and activist causes. They center womxn in music, and address how historically womxn have been marginalized in the music industry. The great artist and activist Harry Belafonte once said, “when the movement is strong, the music is strong,” and RRC attempts to live up to that call. The RRC calls for justice and equity for womxn across racial, ethnic, economic, sexual identity and religious lines. They aim to be intersectional in their feminism and reveal that all social justice issues overlap heavily with womxn’s issues; to harness the collective power of womxn to help change the world; to celebrate each other through song; to embrace Toi Dericotte’s idea of “joy as an act of resistance.”

Returning to live performances… Is it safe?

At Goshen College, safety has been our number one priority during this global pandemic, which led us to postpone our 2020-21 season. 

We have learned a lot over the past 15 months, and with the widespread availability of highly effective vaccinations, we feel confident that we will again be able to gather together to experience the power of live arts performances. 

For the safety of our patrons, artists and staff, the following precautions are being observed in response to COVID-19:

  • At this time, all patrons and staff will be required to wear face masks while indoors on campus. We will continually monitor and adjust the need for this requirement based on county vaccination rates and transmission rates.
  • At this time, we will not be limiting seating capacity. Extra seats can be purchased if you would like additional buffer seating.
  • The performance venues are well ventilated and air is exchanged frequently.
  • The facilities will be thoroughly cleaned before and after each performance, and hand sanitizing stations will be provided throughout the facility.
  • All event staff are required to complete a daily wellness check before coming to work.
  • We ask that all guests follow recommendations from the CDC and do not attend a show if you have a fever, cough or respiratory symptoms, or have recently been in contact with someone who was sick.

We will continue to monitor the pandemic throughout the coming months, and make adjustments on safety protocols based on local health guidelines, transmission and vaccination rates.

We are committed to creating an atmosphere where all patrons can relax and enjoy the performance!

If you have any questions or concerns about safety, please feel free to reach out to the box office at boxoffice@goshen.edu.

 

We hope that you will enjoy the variety of offerings, and that you join us for as many of these outstanding performances as you can! We suggest submitting your season ticket orders as soon as possible to reserve seating in your preferred area with the same seat for each concert. Past season ticket holders will receive priority seating if they return their order form before Friday, July 9.
