The Atlanta Women’s Chorus makes an exciting return to live performances with Phoenix Rising, a unique show that traverses Atlanta’s past from the early settlers all the way up to Outkast. Through this show, the AWC hopes to shed light on the continued struggle for equality in Atlanta and celebrate its rich diversity. A desire to represent the honest, unfiltered truth of Atlanta’s history is infused throughout Phoenix Rising. Written and produced by diverse representatives from the chorus, the show uses music as a means of connecting to the sometimes painful, sometimes triumphant experiences of Atlanta’s past.
Phoenix Rising promises to be more than a simple concert. Just like its namesake, this show has risen from the ashes of the frustration and heartbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic to breathe new life into the story of Atlanta and its people. Featuring music from the Sacred Harp repertoire, songs of the Underground Railroad, Civil Rights anthems, and modern pop and hip hop, this show will certainly be an experience you won’t want to miss.
