In 2020, amid historic protests over the killings of unarmed Black Americans, The Women’s Chorus of Dallas’ leadership took a long, hard look at our organization’s contributions to Dallas and North Texas communities. While we have women of color and LGBTQ+ representation at every level of Chorus leadership and frequently perform and commission works by women composers, we recognize that there is much work to be done to fully operationalize Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in practice and policy and to exemplify anti-racism in our organization. . . .
Why Do We Love The Women's Chorus of Dallas?
From live concerts and virtual offerings, to the joy we bring to our community and local partner agencies through song, TWCD has something for everyone.
The composer of this song, Elaine Hagenberg, was inspired by a hymn that Scottish minister George Matheson wrote in 1882. After Matheson was blinded at the age of nineteen, his fiancé canceled their engagement, and he was cared for by his sister. He penned these words years later as he faced a painful reminder of his loss at his sister's wedding. The hopeful ascending lines represent renewed faith, and though lingering dissonance reminds us of past heartache, a beautiful promise remains "that morn shall tearless be.”
We hope this piece reminds you that there is beauty and joy to behold,
even through times of darkness.

"For several years I've been attending, following and supporting a group that is a model for how to overcome all of the partisan nonsense we face every day. Instead of debating or hating, they do it by creating. They sing. And they do it with an excellence that has earned an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall in May. . . .
