The DC Labor Chorus, founded and directed by longtime cultural worker Elise Bryant, is a musical ensemble from the Washington, DC, area that sings at concerts, rallies, demonstrations, and picket lines.

We are made up of various ages, races and faith traditions. While some members are actually current or former union employees, every member actively supports the principle of liberty and justice for all.  

Some of us are professional musicians, while others simply enjoy blending their voices to make a joyous sound that comes from songs of the civil rights and labor movements, as well as pop, jazz and other musical genres. Most of us are union members and activists who just love to sing!  We sing for solidarity. We sing for peace. We sing for jobs. We sing for justice. We sing for joy.
