Still WE Rise: Changing HERStory


“Leaving behind nights of terror and fear

I rise

Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear

I rise

Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,

I am the dream and the hope of the slave.

I rise

I rise

  I rise.”

Ensemble Lyrae’s “Still WE Rise: Changing HERstory,” is rising from the ashes of March 2020 and finally coming to life! This concert explores the theme of women throughout history who have persisted in the face of obstacles. It celebrates those who have spoken up, risen up, fought for what is right, and paved the way for others by changing the course of history. Works include the stories and/or words of women such as Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Malala Yousafzai, Abigail Adams, Louisa May Alcott, and Anne Frank, among many others. The program also includes a set of suffragette songs, never taking for granted our fundamental right to vote

We stand on the shoulders of the courageous women who came before us. While we have made much progress, there is still work to be done. Women and men are waking and rising to the call for conscious engagement around widespread imbalances.

WE rise
WE rise
  WE rise. 


Ensemble Lyrae is pleased to welcome Guest Artists, Amy Lee, piano and Emma Terrell, percussion to the Still WE Rise: Changing HERstory performances!
