On December 1st, “Joyful Solidarity” was the theme this year as the voice of the DC area labor movement closed out 2013 with favorite songs (holiday and other) selected by various Chorus members, along with sacred songs from a range of faith and cultural traditions. The audience was also treated to our ever-popular medley of holiday carols … reworked to make you laugh out loud as you think about how we move through our communities and the world in which we live.
There were two FREE concerts (at 3 and 7:30 pm) that day. The two show times gave people a chance to come before holiday festivities or after. We hope that the progressive music lovers who’ve made the DC Labor Chorus’s annual Winter concert one of their favorite holiday traditions enjoyed the concert! We hope to post some photos of this energizing day soon, so stay tuned.

Our Spring 2012 Concert was an amazing evening. While photographs can in no way do justice to the concert, we’ve created a gallery that gives a small taste of the evening.
The DC Labor Chorus is a musical ensemble representing union members from the Washington, DC area. Some of us are professional musicians but most of us are union members and activists who just love to sing!
The DC Labor Chorus sings for rallies, demonstrations, and picket lines. We welcome union members to the annual Great Labor Arts Exchange each summer, and we hold an annual “Sacred/Favorite Songs” concert every winter and a community benefit concert every spring.
