CWC Celebrates Stonewall 50

Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall

Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall

Common Woman Chorus and Triangle Gay Men’s Chorus “[sang] out magnificently” at a monumental concert on June 22, 2019 entitled Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall. This event celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall uprising, the catalyst for the modern LGBTQ+ movement for civil rights and the inspiration for the annual celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride.

CWC, TGMC and their special guests, the Triad Pride Men’s and Women’s Choruses, performed the title music suite—a brand new, 8-movement work co-commissioned by the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. In doing so, the four choruses represented North Carolina as part of the largest collaboration of LGBTQ+ choruses in history. This work will be performed by over 25 choruses nationwide this year.

Thank you, CVNC and Chatham Life & Style for the full reviews of our performance.

The Chorus invites any woman-identified, gender-nonconforming, and transgender individuals who can maintain pitch and commit to rehearsals. We welcome you into a loving community with a goal of diversity in ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, interests and beliefs. Our chorus will inspire joy and connection long after rehearsals end.


The Common Woman Chorus is a progressive voice and vibrant musical community based in the Triangle area of North Carolina. The chorus is a member of Sister Singers Network and GALA Choruses.

Since 1983, the uncommon singers of the Common Woman Chorus have given performances that highlight the diversity and strength of our everyday lives and experiences while celebrating the local and global events that inspire and inform us.
