Description

Join Vox Femina as they celebrate the music, people, and events that have inspired them in our 15 years of togetherness. A number of our alumnae will be singing with them again, some having traveled quite a distance to be here for this momentous occasion.

Vox is honored to welcome a special guest, singer/songwriter Cris Williamson. As a pioneer of “Women’s Music,” Cris paved the way for today’s independent women artists who now regularly top the charts and helped foster the birth of a new genre of music. Decades before indie labels were the norm, and years before women had any real access in the industry, in her own way, Cris Williamson was busy changing the face of popular music. She hasn’t looked back since. Cris’s stellar vocals and compelling persona are regarded as legendary for good reason. Despite being like a well-kept secret, and dwelling almost completely in the independent music world, she nonetheless had an impact worldwide. For Cris, the music has always been the vehicle for something larger. Her lyrics appear on a regular basis in books and thesis papers. Her albums are part of the curriculum for women’s studies courses, and thousands of people who may not even know her name join their voices in “Song of the Soul” around campfires and places of worship. She is often considered a treasure, passed hand-to-hand, person-to-person.  

Enjoy a memorable look at their first 15 years and be the first to hear what’s in the works as they get ready to raise the curtain on next season and beyond.
