Keep Hope Alive! Moving Forward in Challenging Times
By The Rockin’ Solidarity Chorus
Featuring tunes old and new in four-part harmony, the show focuses on inspiring individuals and the movements that unite them. Among those profiled are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Dolores Huerta, the Reverend William Barber, and the young anti-gun activists of the Parkland movement.
Chorus director Pat Wynne put the piece together as a response to the Trump era. While the administration foments xenophobia and channels benefits to the wealthy, the last few years have seen an upsurge of resistance and activism. The emphasis of the Chorus’ performance is on hope and taking strength from what is positive in our circumstances and our past.
The Rockin’ Solidarity Chorus was founded in 1999, to continue the cultural traditions of the labor and civil-rights movements. Its performances interweave songs with spoken narrative.
