We appear at rallies, protests, union meetings and on stages around the Seattle area to inspire and educate in four-part harmony. Come out and hear us sing!

The Seattle Labor Chorus is happy to invite you to a concert featuring guest artist Jean Rohe, prize-winning songwriter and extraordinary singer from New York City.

Jean is a young, multi-lingual singer, storyteller, and composer, who mixes aesthetic approaches from jazz, folk, and Brazilian traditions. Her one-of-a-kind narrative songs, which range from fantastical riffs on old folktales to âphonojournalismâ (a genre of her own invention) have won recognition from the New York Songwriters Circle and the Montreux Jazz Festival. Said Nate Chinen of the New York Times: Jean is a confident singer whose compositions tend toward a literate and imploring tone. And she often invites the audience to sing boisterous choruses.

Jean has performed with the Billboard-charting alt-country group Calexico, is often featured on New York Public Radio, and co-wrote and performed the music for the feature film Noise (2004). A recent recipient of the prestigious MacDowell Fellowship, she just released her second CD, showcasing her intricately crafted arrangements.

The Seattle Labor Chorus, directed by Janet Stecher, will share the program with their customary parodies, classics and contemporary compositions analyzing society's ills and celebrating justice.

Join Jean and the Seattle Labor Chorus for an engaging night of song.
