DOLCE: Raise Your Voice – a great success!

 

raise-your-voice-1This past Friday night, February 19th, I had the pleasure of joining Dolce in co-hosting “Raise Your Voice,” a gala concert featuring women artists at Lehigh. Guests arrived at an intimately set Lamberton Hall to hear students, faculty, and staff perform everything from jazz, to musical theater, to the debut of a new fight song, “Lehigh Women,” written by Michelle Sanabria ’15. Sharing the stage with not only fellow students, but with some of my former professors as well, I really felt the sense of community among women of Lehigh that this event aimed to create.

Friday night was such a success (we had to scramble to set up extra chairs right before the concert started!) that I am already looking forward to the next big thing on our radar. On November 4th and 5th, Dolce will be celebrating its tenth year (!!!) with a concert in Baker Hall which will include the world premiere of I Rise, a piece commissioned  from Los Angeles composer Reena Esmail for Dolce. All Dolce alumnae are invited back for this performance – more details coming on this soon.

It has gotten to that point in the year where many of us seniors, myself included, have no idea where we’ll be in six months, but I am certainly hoping to make it back to Lehigh for this one – and I hope you will, too!

Many thanks to PBS39 for providing us with the full concert footage!
