The Kansas City Women’s Chorus is Kansas City’s only regional women’s chorus inspiring through performance, embracing diversity, and advocating social justice.
Founded in 1999, the Chorus has spanned 18 years, building bridges with local community charities while bringing entertaining and enlightening women’s choral music to Kansas City. What began as a 25 member chorus has grown to a 100+ member nonprofit organization. We are an auditioned chorus comprised of a diverse membership who represent a wide range of ages, ethnicities, sexual orientation and religious backgrounds. We are single, married, gay, and straight women. We are mothers, grandmothers, sisters and daughters. We are businesswomen, doctors, teachers, technicians, and artists.
The Kansas City Women’s Chorus is an instrument for promoting greater understanding and equality for all through song and action. We envision a future of organizational and financial sustainability for the chorus through:
an increase in the number of performances,
an increase in revenue from all of our community partnerships,
effective and efficient operations by adherence to the best practices policies and procedures of our organization,
purposeful discomfort with the status quo.
The Kansas City Women’s Chorus seeks to promote harmony in our diverse community, and we do so by providing service to a variety of organizations.
