VOX: A Choir for Social Change presents: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Through music, spoken word, and personal reflection this event will hold space for first voices to speak truth to trauma, to shame, to healing, and the strength and courage it takes to speak out about sexual assault.
Join the Phoenix Community Choir, the Emergency Choir Operation, and VOX: A Choir for Social Change for a joint concert on Dec. 5th, at 7:30pm at Fort Massey United Church.
This concert is intended to be a reprieve from all the Christmas music we will be hearing in December, and will feature a wide range of music- from African folk songs to popular music, and yes, some holiday music too!

Don't BE Afraid and VOX: A Choir for Social Change present: UKUTHULA (oo-koo-too-la). From the Zulu word for peace, UKUTHULA will reflect on the harmful effects of fear in society- as commented on by members of Halifax's queer community- and call on the public to keep working towards a more inclusive, peaceful society.
The event will feature a wide range of music, from South African protest songs to arrangements of Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, to complement the words of the speakers and explore past and present struggles for equality.
UKUTHULA will sensitively connect the efforts of various pro-equality movements, weaving together individual struggles, to create a stronger, more unified society. This event is not to be missed!
