There’s a new choir in town. Anyone can join. The Justice Choir will have its first rehearsal Saturday morning (June 10) at Westminster Presbyterian Church, followed by its debut performance. It’s already booked for another sing on July 18 at the Wolfe Park Pavilion in St. Louis Park.

Begun and led by Tesfa Wondemagegnehu (won-dih-MAWG-nee-you), the Justice Choir, Twin Cities chapter will sing songs about peace, freedom, courage, love, resilience, human rights and taking a stand. The songs are from the “Justice Choir Songbook,” a collection of 42 mostly new, some repurposed protest songs for the issues of our time. Commissioned by Westminster Church, it will soon be available as a free download for anyone, anywhere who wants to use it: other choirs, congregations, families, schools, communities.
