100 Women’s Voices

Event Date: 21 November 2018

Enjoy an uplifting and breathtaking performance by 100 women from across Merseyside in celebration of 100 years of some women gaining the right to vote.

An array of performances will inspire you through spoken word, song, and music, all in the stunning surroundings of the beautiful St George’s Hall Concert Room. Each ticket holder will be entered into a prize draw to win a selection of gifts from a local business.

The evening will consist of powerful solo performances from singers Chantel Coleman and Daisy Gill and spoken word artists Rochelle Ellis and Raven Rahda plus The Ukulala’s, female Ukulele duo. The highlight of the evening will be the 100 strong female choir formed of individuals from many different communities and women’s organisations. These include Liverpool Pride Volunteers, Refugee Women Connect, Imagine Knowsley Bridge, Amadudu, WHISC, Liverpool Domestic Abuse Service, The S Word, John Paul II Polish Saturday School in Liverpool, Kaboodle Choir, Liverpool Socialist Singers Spirit Level and Hope Street Harmonies.

The event is hosted by Blackburne house in partnership with musical director and singer, Jennifer John. This event will bring the #Vote100 events to a penultimate end with one big celebration. All women involved come from a variety of organisations across the region. Some of them have never performed before!

So, what about the performers? Chantel Coleman is a singer and performer – one of Liverpool’s rising stars, singing the first half of the event. Her soulful voice, distinctive style sound, and talent set her apart from many other Soul divas! Her credits include working with basement Jaxx singing with the legendary Prince at London’s Pigalle club. We also have Daisy Gill, a Liverpool blues singer-songwriter demonstrating a flair and grace – not only with her performance skills – but with a sense of style. Our wonderful and legendary Eithne Browne will also be performing a solo, so we’re very excited at the rich mix of fantastic women. Our fanastic spoken word artists include Raven Rahda and Rochelle Ellis.

“Singing It’s one of the magical gifts in life that easily unites us socially, creatively and spiritually. People love to sing in all kinds of scenarios and the natural resonance that group singing creates guides people into a safe familiarity and closeness that stays with them profoundly even when the singing has stopped.” – Jennifer John

All tickets purchased or donations made (£5 or more on the door) will be entered into a prize draw which has some wonderful prizes courtesy of The Buyers Club, Fredericks, The Blackburne Pub and Eatery, Jennifer John Music, and Blackburne House.
