Still I Rise
Still I Rise returns to The College of St. Scholastica on Friday, April 8 in the Mitchell Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. The collaborative concert features the collegiate women’s choirs of St. Scholastica, College of St. Benedict, University of Northwestern–St. Paul and the University of St. Thomas in a performance that intertwines the arts, education and social justice.
Elise Hintzman is a student in the College’s Bella Voce choir and also serves as rehearsal manager for the Lake Superior Youth Chorus. “Still I Rise is an incredibly impactful experience because of the unforgettable experience it presents: the feminine voice on full display, unapologetically,” she said. “This event promotes solidarity, awareness, and ultimately action as it inspires each individual to use their voice for change.”
Admission is free but a free-will offering will be taken with all proceeds benefiting Duluth’s Safe Haven Shelter and Resource Center.
Student Emmy Mayer expressed her hope that attendees will be called to action and inspired to support organizations like Safe Haven that provide resources to local women. “This program is a moving experience for those involved and those attending as we work together to uplift and encourage one another inside the performance venue and beyond.”
