Labor Songs Workshop

Presented by members of the Charm City Labor Chorus

Join the Charm City Labor Chorus in a workshop on the history and performance of selected songs of the labor, Civil Rights and social justice movements. Working with Chorus members, participants will split into groups to learn separate parts, then join together to learn to sing rousing songs in harmony. Ability to read music not required. We will also throw in a couple songs from our concerts not included in the song book.

We put together a basic list of 15 songs for possible use in the workshop. The list includes 9 songs sung in unison and 6 songs that are in parts.

The songs fall into the following thematic categories:

  • Union/Labor (4)
  • Civil Rights (3)
  • Social Justice (3)
  • International (3)
  • Antiwar (2)
