Anna Crusis Women’s Choir

Formed in 1975, Anna Crusis Women’s Choir was the first feminist women’s choir in the USA. The chorus is known for its multicultural eclectic repertoire, a cappella vocal excellence, music for, by and about women, and content which strives to address the most pressing issues of our time and communities.

Artistry and Outreach

Anna Crusis’ spring concert and GALA Festival performance feature a new composition, funded by a GALA Joyner/Murphy Commission Grant, which combines the original poetry of area youth with original music composed by Philadelphia-based Cynthia Folio. Their winter season included many outreach performances: the Christian Movement for LGBT Equality, International Women’s Day Philadelphia Coalition, the Metropolitan Community Church of Philadelphia, supporting LGBT organizations and “Sho-So-Ever and Project H.O.M.E.’s Finding Home mural dedication, participation at the 8th Annual PA Conference for Women and two public, winter concerts.
