We believe live musical performance should not be a luxury or privilege but available and accessible to all who want to participate. Towards that core belief of inclusivity, we have embraced a sliding scale ticket model available to our Grand Rapids Women’s Chorus audience.
Our suggested ticket price will remain at $20 (plus on-line purchasing fees) which we recognize may be affordable for some and prohibitive for others. $20 in no way reflects the real economics of producing our shows, paying our artistic director, assistant director, accompanist, bookkeeper, and special guest musicians – that would be much more than a $20 ticket. A $20 ticket is simply what we hope is a comfortable median from which you can make your own decision about what your current circumstances can bear. We want to make concert-going a regular part of our cultural lives, so we ask you to decide what ticket price works for your unique and everchanging circumstances. Let’s hold each other up as a community and welcome each other into a room filled with Passion. Purpose. Song.
WHAT SHOULD YOU PAY?
We simply ask that you thoughtfully consider your current level of income (no proof required), and your ability to support a fair price for fellow community members in need.
Are you in a place of abundance where you can hold and nurture others today who can’t afford this concert experience? Or are you struggling and need to lean on others today to recharge your batteries? The amount you pay may change for each concert you attend. Thank you for making the thoughtful choice that works best for you…right now. No matter what you choose, we are grateful for your support and interest in live music. We look forward to seeing you at our next concert.

Sister Singer Choral Festival “We Rock the World” in Cleveland, OH
June 28 – July 2, 2023
We are excited to participate in another Sister Singers Network festival this summer in Cleveland, OH. You may remember that the GRWC hosted the last festival in the summer of 2018 where over 600 singers from more than 20 choruses filled the Amway Grand and downtown area with music. We laughed and learned together and joined our voices in protest and song. If you love women’s choral and social justice music and are interested in more details about the festival in Cleveland, June 28 – July 2, 2023, please feel free to reach out. Concerts will be open to the public. Email email@example.com.
