Still WE Rise: Changing HERstory
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak thats 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.

    Inspired by the words of Maya Angelou, Ensemble Lyraes Spring 2024 concert, Still WE Rise: Changing HERstory, explores the theme of women throughout history who have persisted in the face of obstacles. This program 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. Ensemble Lyrae's program powerful and timely tribute to the fight for women's rights, particularly in light of the suffragette movement. It is commendable that the group is actively celebrating and honoring the centennial of the 19th amendment through music and performance. The inclusion of suffragette songs adds a poignant touch to the program, reminding audiences of the importance of not taking such fundamental rights for granted. It's wonderful to see art being used as a platform to commemorate historical milestones and advocate for ongoing equality.

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.
