Singers invited to learn Women’s March anthem at Feb. 18 gathering
MIDDLEBURY — Interested singers will gather together at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society on Saturday, Feb. 18, to learn and sing the march “anthem” that went viral at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., just after the inauguration.
Besides having a good time (with conversation and refreshments after the singing), organizers hope singers in Addison County will feel empowered to sing this song “I Can’t Keep Quiet” at pertinent venues such as future marches or vigils.
The artist MILCK, who wrote the music, has offered free downloads with guide recordings. It is available at www.icantkeepquiet.org. Organizers hope some participants will be able to download and practice the music ahead of time, but copies will be available for those not able to do so.
Participants will also share and sing other protest songs, led by other directors, as time allows.
This fundraiser workshop will be lead by Lucy Tenenbaum, director of the CVUUS choir and also of Ladies’ Night Out, a Rutland-based women’s chorus.
The Feb. 18 workshop will take place from 2-4:30 p.m. at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society meeting hall off Charles Avenue, near the Middlebury Union High School. All women and men are welcome to attend.
The workshop is free but a suggested donation of $10 or more will be greatly appreciated; all proceeds will go to benefit WomenSafe. RSVP to [email protected].
