True North
Weekend Events:
Join us for this wonderful celebration of 50 years of music making! Events include a welcome reception on Friday evening, sing-along, rehearsal for alumnae and current singers, and Saturday evening dinner party. The weekend culminates in our Sunday afternoon concert, where voices from PWCs past and present will come together as one.

Concert Information:
In the parlance of explorers, True North refers to the absolute point where longitude lines converge in the North, marked by the North Star. Over the centuries, it has been a guide for displaced travelers driven by the human desire to find home. With the closing performance of this very special season, we invite you, our singers, alumnae, and audience home to the PWC  to our True North.
Favorites such as the lyrical Schuberts Psalm 23, the courageous Song of Survival repertoire, and Ron Jeffers jazzy and whimsical Jabberwocky (commissioned by the family of PWC "founding mother" Anne Anderson) will join several new PWC commissions in this anniversary spring concert. The SSAA arrangement of Harriet Tubman by Kathleen McGuire calls us to action. We welcome back British composer Cecilia McDowall with another PWC commission. And a special world premiere by Eric Tuan interweaves themes of displacement, exile, and homecoming in centuries past as well as in our modern-day Silicon Valley. The sweetly nostalgic Cape Breton Lullaby will complete the cycle as the PWC opens the gates to the next fifty years.
