C21 Women's Ensemble is a progressive, auditioned choral ensemble
for women that strives to be fresh and unpredictable, embracing modern compositions and composers even while remaining respectful and grateful to the classic choral tradition. We cherish our storied musical past and are excited about exploring new works.
Now in our fifth season under the enterprising and provocative direction of Martha Swisher, our goal is to create musical experiences of deeper meaning with humanistic themes that ring true for our audiences. Join us!

The fire within is the creative impulse. It is the unchosen directive that burns inside. The C21 Women’s Ensemble presents songs that fuel the imagination with flames and energy.
We hope to inspire the same creative spark that allowed someone like Coretta Scott King to bear the weight of a legacy with grace and integrity. ("I’ll Go Alone," Alexander) and that enabled Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century mystic to illuminate the spiritual ("O frondens virga," Kesselman), as well as music from the film Portrait of a Lady on Fire ("La Jeune Fille en Feu," Simonini), a Macedonian dance ("Makedonska Humoreska," Skalovski) and much more to help us a find a way through the darkness and into the light.
Join us at 4:00 p.m. on June 5th at The Kehrein Center for the Performing Arts. Pre-concert discussion begins at 3.
