"A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman." - Melinda Gates
As an all-female group, empowerment is such a huge part of our story. When we come together to share our love for music, we use our voices--and those voices matter.
In today's world, it's important now more than ever that we make our voices heard--for us to Rise Up. We are very excited to share a night full of music, light, and love together and would be so happy if you joined us.
Tickets are $5 at the door (free with MU student ID)!
Special guest: Illinois State University's Acafellaz
