Singing out: New Mex­ico Women’s Cho­rus

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The New Mex­ico Women’s Cho­rus takes a trip back in time with Tune Into NMWC 1960 AM!, a con­cert of med­leys by 1960s singing sen­sa­tions in­clud­ing Chubby Checker, Marvin Gaye, and Nina Si­mone. The cho­rus, which has been open to women of all ages and ex­pe­ri­ence lev­els since 1993, was founded with a so­cially pro­gres­sive fem­i­nist mis­sion. In re­ac­tion to the re­sult of the re­cent pres­i­dent elec­tion, protest songs by Bob Dy­lan and other artists were added to what had been planned as a cel­e­bra­tory pro­gram. New Mex­ico Women’s Cho­rus per­forms at the Cen­ter for Spir­i­tual Liv­ing (505 Camino de los Mar­quez, 505-983-5022) on Sun­day, Jan. 15, at 4 p.m. Tick­ets are $12.50 and $15, avail­able at www.nm­wom­en­scho­rus.org, and $20 at the door. The cho­rus sings at the Round­house on Satur­day, Jan. 21, at 11:30 a.m. as part of the Women’s March on Wash­ing­ton-Santa Fe. — J.L.
