"Half the Sky" is not nearly enough room for the big, expressive sound of Vox Femina, the city's premier female chorus. Join the group as it completes its latest concert cycle with Half the Sky: Hear Our Voices at Zipper Concert Hall. Inspired by Half the Sky, a powerful book by Pulitzer winners Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, the chorus has put together a stirring program of North American originals, from spirituals to rousing civil rights anthems. A few special pieces will be performed with the young women of Mira Costa High School -- the next generation of female singing talent. Finally, the women of Vox will give "voice" to their own experiences with an original commission: Acclaimed composer Jenni Brandon has set the words of individual chorus members to her moving composition "We Are Home."

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.
