Chorus As Community: The Power of Singing Together

Featuring: Bernardo Palombo, Ruben Gonzalez, Mario Cancel, Hudson Valley Sally (Terry Colliton, Dave Tarlo, Laurie Siegel, and John Fisher), with narration by Lupe Ramsey

From the Paris Commune to the present, songs have played an outsize role in energizing and inspiring progressive movements. As Pete Seeger said, "songs may not change the world, but they certainly change the people who change the world." Pete's words have proved especially true in the Americas, in both the Nueva Canción movement in Latin America and the civil rights and anti-war movements in North America. Join us at the Left Forum to sing some of the old songs and new songs as well--songs in both English and Spanish, but singable by all. Help us continue this long, rich thread of activist music. Raise your voice. 

The Left Forum is the largest annual conference of the broad Left in the United States. Each spring thousands of conference participants come together to discuss pressing local, national, and global issues, to better understand commonalities and differences, to consider alternatives to current predicaments, and to share ideas toward building social movements that can transform the world.
