A busy hoe is a happy hoe
What we've been up to
Phew we are some busy hoes! Last week we had the honor and privilege of being greeters at Charis-The St Louis Woman's Chorus fall concert Censored: Banned Books and Forbidden Stories. We also supported two of our own as they put aside their habits for concert black and took to the stage as first time (Sister Texas Hotbox) and as an alumni (Sister Hanukkah Jewinski).
What an incredibly moving concert as this group of 80+ singers sang songs that touched on controversial topics such as Loretta Lynn's "The Pill" a comic-tinged song about birth control, as well as Stardust composed by B.E. Boykin, a moving piece where the singers call for “a home where we can run” in memory of Ahmaud Arbery, “a home where we can pray” in memory of the victims of the Mother Emanuel shooting, “a home where we can breathe” in memory of George Floyd, and a home “to sleep and dream without fear” in memory of Breonna Taylor.
Much like the weather in St. Louis, the gambit of emotions were felt from the first to last notes played on the piano. Thank you for having us! We can't wait till April here to edit.
