MUSE, Cincinnati's Women's Choir's fall concert will offer a musical narrative traced from the Post-Reconstruction Era to modern-day, with special emphasis on the woman's voice and musical contributions surrounding Civil Rights issues in America. MUSE welcomes collaborator, Dr. Tammy Kernodle of Miami University, who will weave the rich history of the relationship between music and the African American experience around MUSE’s performance. MUSE will perform new commissions and arrangements by African American women composers such as Jacqueline Hairston, Lori Hicks, and Maria Thompson-Corley; songs like Nina Simone's daring protest song “Mississippi Goddam”, Ysaye Barnwell's “Go Down Moses”, and “Strange Fruit”, made famous by Billie Holiday. MUSE also welcomes Siri Imani of TRIIIBE back to the stage.
