By the Brooklyn Women's Chorus

BklynWmnsChorusBrooklyn Women’s Chorus was founded in 1997 by Brooklyn resident and musician Bev Grant. They are women of all ages, from diverse ethnic backgrounds and walks of life. They perform at peace rallies and union functions, coffee houses and meeting houses... The power of song is born again with each new chorus member. And because their music calls attention to the things they find right or wrong in society, and the world, that power is reborn with every song they sing.
