Live music and chorus: This month Women in Harmony, A Chorus of Women’s Voices presents the winter concert All One Planet on January 25-26 at the Woodfords Congregational Church in Portland, Maine.

All One Planet will be a concert of choral music about the environment – both its beauty and our collective responsibility to care for it. The pieces on the program range from contemplative to energetic and from serious to funny. They include such titles as Bound By the Beauty, Cosmic Stew, I Need to Wake Up, Big Yellow Taxi, Compost, and The Earth is Singing My Name. As always, we will feature music by women artists, composers and arrangers, including Joan Szymko, Ruth Huber, Eleanor Daley, and our accompanist, Deana Ingraham Gurney. Learn more and buy tickets online »
