SING FOR HOPE CELEBRATES WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH WITH FOUR WEEKS OF LIVE VIRTUAL PROGRAMMING, FREE AND OPEN TO ALL

MARCH 1 -31, 2022

Nonprofit Sing for Hope to present live daily virtual concerts all month long featuring 

leading female artists including Grammy-nominated jazz vocalists Thana Alexa and Nicole Zuraitis, New York City Ballet Soloist Georgina Pazcoguin, Israeli Mezzo-Soprano Inbar Goldmann, Singer / Songwriter Elle Baez, Actresses Danyel Fulton and Daniella Rabbani, as well as tributes to Dolly Parton, Carole King, P!NK, and more

Open to all via Sing for Hope’s Open Arts platform, an innovative program created to relieve isolation among the elderly, youth, and healthcare audiences

New York, NY, February 25, 2022 – Sing for Hope announced today that in commemoration of Women’s History Month, it will present a month-long celebration of female artists and culture on its Open Arts virtual platform. Live, interactive, and free of charge for everyone, Open Arts is a virtual extension of Sing for Hope’s mission of “art for all,” presenting the brightest stars of Broadway, opera, jazz, classical, pop, and the world’s leading stages. Launched in response to the pandemic, Open Arts addresses the parallel epidemic of isolation that has accompanied the COVID-19 era, particularly for the elderly, the immunocompromised, and at-risk youth. Over the past year, Sing for Hope’s Open Arts has brought joy and comfort to thousands of vulnerable individuals while also helping to put hundreds of artists back to work during a time of unprecedented unemployment and underemployment in the creative sector. 

Sing for Hope’s Open Arts Women’s History Month Celebration will feature leading women working in the arts today, including Grammy-nominated jazz vocalists Thana Alexa, with  Jazz from a Global Perspective with MusicTalks Founder and Artistic Director Elad Kabilio. Also featured are New York City Ballet and Broadway dancer Georginaa Pazcoguin in a program on great Broadway divas, Israeli Mezzo-Soprano Ingmar Goldmann in a program entitled Ladino Music: Songs from the Kitchen, and  Grammy nominated Nicole Zuraitis.

Other highlights include A Tribute to Dolly Parton, featuring Nicole Zuraitis, celebrating the iconic American artist whose over 3,000 songs vividly portray the American experience, and whose humanitarian contributions include youth literacy and funding the development of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Additional live concerts will explore the rich musical treasury of female composers ranging from Clara Schumann and Ethel Smyth to Carole King, P!nk, Georgia Stitt, and Sarah Bareilles, with featured performances by artists including Kearah Armonie, Daniela Rabbani, Julia Gleich, Morgan McEwan, Danyel Fulton, Elle Baez, Erin Monteleone, Johanna, and the Sing for Hope Young at Arts Lab Chorus, curated and led by Open Arts Hosts Sharyn Pirtle, Patrick O’Connell, and Raquel Palmas.

Says Sing for Hope Co-Founder Monica Yunus, “Women’s History Month is dedicated to the often-overlooked contributions of women to our shared history, and to highlighting women’s contributions to culture and society. As a women-founded and -led organization, Sing for Hope has always leaned into the beauty and power – literally and metaphorically – of all women’s voices.”

Continues Co-Founder Camille Zamora, “Our partner audiences may not be able to go to concert halls and theaters right now, but they can connect with these glorious artists and the message of Women’s History Month through Open Arts each and every day. Inspired by our stellar artist roster and the renowned female cultural leaders who serve on Sing for Hope’s Board – including Renée Fleming, Midori Miyazaki, Ann Ziff, Monique Coleman, Linda E. Johnson, CaSandra Diggs, Andrea Jung, and more – we are honored to share our brilliant Women’s History Month programming this month with our audiences of all ages and all of the communities we serve.”

Always free and open to all, Sing for Hope’s Open Arts programs premiere live Monday through Friday at 4PM Eastern/1PM Pacific at singforhope.org/openarts/, where programs are also available on-demand at any time. With partners including NYC Department for the Aging, Maimonides Hospital, and more, Sing for Hope’s Open Arts programs are enjoyed every day in schools, community centers, healthcare facilities, and homes across the country.
