Voices United for Marriage on tour

Series of five SMC/SWC concerts to support Approve R-74 campaign

The Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC) and Seattle Women's Chorus (SWC) will showcase their support for marriage equality with a series of concert events, entitled 'Voices United for Marriage,' in the critical pre-election months of September and October.

Beginning September 14, the two choruses will perform five concerts in cities throughout Western Washington. Each program will feature a 90-minute set of music, stories, and speakers devoted to building awareness and engaging audience members to help Approve Referendum 74 and support marriage equality in the state of Washington.

'These concerts align squarely with the mission of the choruses - to use the power of words and music to recognize the value of Gay and straight people and their relationships,' said State Rep. Jamie Pedersen, a longtime singing member of SMC. 'By sharing the importance of [Approving R-74] to our lives, we will help Washington become a place that fully accepts and values its Gay and Lesbian citizens.'

Pedersen, State Sen. Ed Murray, State Rep. Laurie Jinkins, and other state and local officials are expected to attend and encourage audiences to get involved in the Washington United for Marriage campaign to Approve Referendum 74.

Chorus members will also share their personal stories describing what marriage means to them, and the choruses will also serve as facilitators for audience members' reflections on the importance of marriage in their own lives. Songs that will be performed include 'Over the Rainbow,' 'Dancing Queen,' 'Seal Lullaby,' 'Come Live With Me and Be My Love,' and 'Livin' La Vida Loca.'

'We are excited to let our voices be heard in this way and contribute the support of Approving Referendum 74,' added SMC/SWC executive director Frank Stilwagner. 'This is a matter of equal rights - no one should be discriminated against because of who they are, or whom they love.'
