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!

C21 Women’s Ensemble presents “Women in Constellation” on Sunday, October 23 at the Columbus Park Refectory. “No notes are as connected as the souls that sing them … like stars of twinkling sound.” Through spirituals, rap, contemporary and classical compositions, we aim to inspire.
In the immortal words of Susan B. Anthony, set to music, “There is so much to be done, Rise Up!” West-Side students from the Austin BUILD program will join the ensemble to celebrate the words of poet Colleen Carhuff: “I am you, We are one!”
At this time, we will not be requiring proof of vaccination for entry but are strongly recommending patrons wear masks to help protect our singers, staff, and fellow patrons. Policies will be subject to change and will be communicated to the best of our ability ahead of each event.
