Seattle Labor Chorus
Red Renewal: Seattle's Socialist Spring
Thursday, May 01 at 07:00PM
For International Workers' Day, we wrap up Red Renewal and kick off May Works, a month-long celebration of workers in Seattle, with a performance by the Seattle Labor Chorus, accompanied by worker films, a final community discussion and a proper May Day party.
The Seattle Labor Chorus was formed in March,1997 for a performance at the Northwest Folklife Festival with Pete Seeger. Since then, the chorus has performed for the King County Labor Council, Washington State Labor Council, and many local unions, as well as in concert with folk musician Charlie King.
Recent performances include the 50th anniversary conference of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions, the AFL-CIO rally to protest the World Trade Organization and the Western Workers Heritage Festival. Directed by Janet Stecher, an experienced vocal performer and recording artist (in the duo Rebel Voices), the chorus is a nonprofit organization dedicated to economic and social justice, and the fundamental right of all workers to organize as a means of securing a living wage.
