Oct 16, Portsmouth Men's Chorus/Portsmouth Women's Chorus
Location: South Church, 292 State Street, Portsmouth
Presented by Robinson, Boesch, Sennott & Aeschliman, PA

The Portsmouth Women's Chorus was founded in 1985 by Priscilla Stevens French as an auditioned ensemble of adult singers from Seacoast communities. PWC is dedicated to singing the highest quality choral literature available for upper-register voices. Selections span 16th to 20th century classical repertoire sung in Latin, German Italian and French, as well as English.

The group is known for its innovative and adventurous programming. Past concerts have explored American music, the history of women in music, and offered world premieres of choral arrangements by contemporary New England composers. The gala 20th anniversary celebration performance held this spring to a full house at The Music Hall included a retrospective of chorus favorites, the world premiere of "Words of Strength," and collaborations with the Voices of AIR and Ballet New England
