Singers found their voices in women’s anthem

MIDDLEBURY — Around 100 singers gathered at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society last Saturday, Feb. 18, to learn and sing the march “anthem” that went viral at the Jan. 21 Women’s March in Washington, D.C.
The sanctuary was filled — mostly with women, but happily some men and youth took part, as well.
The anthem, called “I Can’t Keep Quiet,” was written by the artist MILCK, who offered free downloads of it with guide recordings. Organizers of Saturday’s training hope singers in Addison County will feel empowered to sing the song at upcoming marches or vigils where it is appropriate.
Lucy Tenenbaum led instruction and rehearsal of the anthem in Middlebury. She is director of the CVUUS choir and also of Ladies’ Night Out, a Rutland-based women’s chorus.   
SINGERS FILLED THE worship hall at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society in Middlebury Saturday to learn the “anthem” from the Jan. 21 Women’s March. 
She had lots of help from many people, including Ali Gibson, Sarit Katzew, Theresa Gleason, Jack Mayer (who did some beat boxing), Heidi Willis (who led the group in other songs) and Kate Gridley (who played the piano).
The workshop was free but a suggested donation of $10 was taken to raise money for WomenSafe, and $690 was contributed to the Addison County organization.
Word from those who took part was that everyone had an awesome time.
