We are seeking talented women singers of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels in the DC/VA/MD area to join our group. Prior a cappella experience is not required, however a strong passion for social justice and community engagement is a necessity.

\We rehearse weekly on Tuesday evenings and perform approximately 1-4 times per month. As an all-volunteer-run group, members commit to spend anywhere from 1-5 hours per month organizing gigs, arranging songs, promoting our performances or supporting other tasks to help the group run smoothly. To build group capacity and cohesion, we convene for a late summer/early fall 1-2 day retreat focused on music and bonding, along with a mid-year 1 day retreat.  While we are passionate about our music we also enjoy having fun together, whether going to karaoke, volunteering, or attending like-minded musical performances.

To be considered for an audition slot, please submit the following materials:
