Women have impacted the art of song through the ages. For some, it was their own pen which created the song, while for others, it was their story. This concert program will guide the listener through the music that celebrates the women who have impacted song through the ages.

Scars will fashion themselves on us in different ways, never to leave. But what will we say about those scars when someone sees them? Hurt happens; sin happens. The question is, what will we do with it? Will we allow the scars to rest with no purpose on the surface of our skin? Or will we use it to tell the story Christ?

Threefold Cord Women's Choir will present Arise, My Soul, Arise. Join us for our debut performance at First United Methodist Church of Hershey at 7 PM.

The mission of the Threefold Cord Women's Choir is: To encourage and energize Christian women of all ages towards mentorship and service through the art of choral singing. 

The Threefold Cord Women’s Choir was borne out of a desire to create a place where women of like mind could come together from many different stages of life, and find commonality through singing. We are daughters, mothers, granddaughters, and grandmothers seeking to support and mentor one another in and through the circumstances of life.

Our mission finds at its roots the verses in Ecclesiastes 4 which read: 9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.  And it is through this mission that we seek to support one another and other women in our community.

The choir meets several times throughout the year for a one day rehearsal followed by a evening performance. This schedule enables more women to travel and participate; singers come from various locations throughout the northeast. Singers are responsible for preparing the music on their own, prior to the rehearsal/performance day. Our time together focuses on the intricacies of the music and the text being set. We are intentional about carrying out our mission in the music we perform.
