A Welcoming Community of Lesbian Pride
What a strange season. With the safety and wisdom of group in-person singing very much in doubt, we are not scheduling any live performances at this time. However, Soromundi has been very active and hopeful behind the scenes and you can stay up-to-date with our activities by joining our newsletter in the links below. If you would like to join our community of donors with a contribution to Soromundi Lesbian Chorus of Eugene, you may pledge your support also in the links below. Your donation is also eligible for Oregon’s Cultural Tax Credit.
Our new short video “a welcoming community creating a visible expression of lesbian pride” wonderfully reflects the heart and spirit of Soromundi. Over half the chorus members have been rehearsing via the Zoom online platform in readiness for future virtual or in person performances.
Through the power of music and inclusion we do effect positive change in our community, and we are so looking forward to the time we can sing in person again.
Soromundi comes together in song to create a visible expression of lesbian pride. We strive for musical excellence and embrace our commonalities and differences. Through the power of music and inclusion we effect positive change in our community.
A Message from Soromundi’s Board and Director:
Soromundi stands with protestors around the country and the globe in demanding racial justice and the dismantling of systemic racism. We support efforts to eliminate individual and structural violence and discrimination against Black people and all people of color. In this stance we recognize that as a majority white organization we must do our own work in combatting racism and providing a truly welcoming environment for people of color. To this end Soromundi has committed to making education about racism and anti-racism an immediate goal and part of our plan of action for the chorus. We are determined to be allies in this struggle. Black Lives Matter!
