WomEnchant is a choir of women from a wide variety of backgrounds and musical experience. Our common thread is the desire to sing music that celebrates our lives, calls for peace and justice, and demonstrates the power of sisterhood and song. We welcome all women who want to learn and sing music that gives voice to our experiences and our commitment to making positive changes in the world. Since its beginning in 1994, WomEnchant has performed at many events centred on women’s equality, including benefits for shelters, International Women’s Day concerts, Take Back the Night rallies, and performances for women’s centres, and social service agencies. Our appearances include services and events celebrating and supporting Earth Day and environmental concerns, as well as peace, anti-violence and global justice issues.
In 2007 the WomEnchant drumming group was formed to give women the opportunity to learn about and perform on hand drums. Some of the drummers come from within the choir, while others belong only to the drummer’s circle. The WomEnchant Drummers perform with the choir and on their own.
To accommodate women from both the Hamilton and Niagara areas, we rehearse in Grimsby on Monday nights from September to May. For information about performances and membership please email.
