January, 2018 To the members of the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press: It is my distinct pleasure to introduce the Denver Women’s Chorus and welcome you to Lights! Camera! Action!, our first concert offering of the 2017-2018 season. This weekend we explore a wide range of music performed by women for the silver screen. We also highlight women’s contributions to the film industry throughout the program under the heading Women to Watch. Some of the music you will be very familiar to you and some will be fresh and new. We have had a great experience putting this show together and are certain you will be entertained and inspired by what you see and hear at this concert! The DWC is an active and integral part of metropolitan Denver and Front Range communities. In our 2016-2017 season, we entertained 3,241 patrons at subscription concerts and outreach performances by the large chorus and by Take Note!, our a cappella ensemble. This weekend we celebrate with the hundreds of thousands of feminists of all genders in Colorado and throughout our nation who are participating in more than 250 marches, rallies and actions planned to mark the one-year anniversary of the record-breaking 2017 Women’s March. Now, more than ever, we are called to be mindful of the dignity and strength of women and the need for gender equality in our society. Your presence at our concert helps to support our ongoing commitment to explore music by and for women, and to nurture the chorus’ efforts to commission new choral music by female composers and lyricists. We are honored to sing for you! If you are a singer, I hope you will consider being a part of the Denver Women’s Chorus in the future. Every season there are pleasant surprises as we explore many different types of music. And, you are guaranteed to find a welcoming group of talented women who love to sing and who are committed to our mission of “building community through music.” Later this spring, DWC will be collaborating with the Denver Children’s Choir and SOAR Youth & Adult Choir to explore the music from and about childhood. This concert is certain to appeal to audiences of all ages and to be a moving experience that offers hope for our future through the power of music. Thank you for being with us this weekend! Now, sit back and enjoy the show. As Bette Davis says in All About Eve, “Fasten your seatbelts...it’s going to be a bumpy night.” Lights! Camera! Action! has some interesting twists and turns. Come journey with us! Mark Zwilling Artistic Director For the Denver Women’s Chorus 4

Women to Watch: Loveleen Tandar, co-director in India; Tanvi Shah, first Indian woman to win a Grammy EVERGREEN Music by Barbra Striesand Lyrics Paul Williams Arr. Mark Hayes Composed and performed in the 1976 remake of A Star is Born. Barbra Streisand was the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Original Song. Woman to Watch: Joan Didion, screenplay I NEED TO WAKE UP Music and lyrics by Melissa Etheridge Arr. Mark Brymer Guitars: Lee Hamre & Cheri Hall Composed and performed by Melissa Etheridge for the 2006 Al Gore lecture circuit documentary An Inconvenient Truth. This was the first instance of a documentary film winning an Oscar for Best Original Song. Women to Watch: Laurie Lennard (as Laurie David), producer; Lesley Chilcott, coproducer, line producer A TRIBUTE TO JUDY GARLAND arr. John Leavitt The Trolley Song Music and lyrics by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane On the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe Music Harry Warren Lyrics Johnny Mercer “The Trolley Song” is sung by Judy in the 1944 film Meet Me in St. Louis, when her boynext-door love interest boards the trolley she is riding. It was nominated for Best Original Song but did not win. “On the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe” is sung by Judy and the chorus in the 1946 film The Harvey Girls (inspired by entrepreneur Fred Harvey’s western restaurant chain of the 1870’s). It won Best Original Song for that year.


Women to Watch: Kay Van Riper (1907-1948), dialogue and scriptwriter; Eleanore Griffin (1904-1995), original story co-writer and screenplay co-writer.

MISS CELIE’S BLUES Music & lyrics by Quincy Jones, Rod Temperton & Lionel Richie Arr. J David Moore Soloist: Monica Pressley Featuring Sarah E. Blizzard on piano and Shari Lemon on trumpet Nominated for Best Original Song from the powerful film The Color Purple. Although Margaret Avery played Shug who sings to Celie in the film, singer Táta Vega recorded the vocals. Stephen Spielberg reflected that his greatest mistake in directing this film was his lack of courage portraying the lesbian relationship between Celie and Shug. Women to Watch: Alice Walker, writer. This was also Whoopi Goldberg’s debut acting role. SKYFALL Music and lyrics by Adele Adkins and Paul Epworth Arr. Paul Langford Soloist: Ashley Teatum Performed by Adele for the soundtrack of the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall. It won Best Original Song. The “James Bond theme,” which is used in some way in all the movies, is here quoted in the accompaniment after the first chorus, under the words “skyfall is where we start.” Woman to Watch: Barbara Broccoli, producer LISTEN Music and lyrics by Henry Kreiger, Anne Preven, Scott Cutler, and Beyoncé Knowles Arr. Mark Brymer Soloist: Yvonne Goutman Beyoncé sings this as the character Deena Jones in the 2006 movie Dreamgirls, as an expression of independence from her controlling husband.

Women to Watch: Kay Cannon, screenwriter; Elizabeth Banks, producer; Ester Dean, actor and singer TRAVELIN’ THRU Music & lyrics by Dolly Parton Arr. Greg Gilpin Soloist: Arielle Finegold Guitar: Lee Hamre Performed by Take Note! Dolly Parton was asked to compose this song for the film Transamerica about a transgender woman’s cross country road trip. Many felt the lead role should have been given to a trans actor, while others appreciated the decision to cast a female rather than a male actor as lead. With all its flaws, the film was an unexpected success and increased awareness of the experiences of transgender people. We look forward to seeing transgender actors playing transgender roles, telling trans stories themselves. Transgender Women to Watch: Laverne Cox, Jamie Clayton, Harmony Santana, Amiyah Scott, Mya Taylor, Kitana Rodriguez, Michelle Hendley TIL IT HAPPENS TO YOU Music & lyrics by Lady Gaga & Diane E. Warren Arr. Nick Bombicino Soloists: V Rose McDougall & Lyndsey Lane Performed by Take Note!

Woman to Watch: Amy Ziering, producer HOLD ON Music & Lyrics by Phillips, Ballard & Wilson Arr. Jonathan Sparks Soloists: Ariel DeFazio & Shari Lemon Performed by Take Note!

Whoopi Goldberg, hiding out in a convent as part of a witness protection program, takes over the choir and she and the nuns rock out with this version of the hymn, much to the dismay of the Reverend Mother. Woman to Watch: Cindy Gilmore, assistant producer. OUT HERE ON MY OWN Music by Michael Gore Lyrics Lesley Gore Arr. Mac Huff Soloist: Lizzy Campbell Performed by Irene Cara in the 1980 film Fame, when it was nominated for Best Original Song, and by Naturi Naughton in the 2009 remake. Lesley Gore later recorded it herself on her 2005 album Ever Since. Women to Watch: Beth DePatie, executive producer I’VE HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE Music and lyrics by Frank Previte, John DeNicola, and Donald Markowitz Arr.

The Denver Women’s Chorus (DWC) was founded in 1984 with the goal of building community through music. We are a community chorus of women with equal interests in the excellence of our music and performances, as well as in the communities in which we live. DWC believes that music should challenge and inspire us towards individual growth and dynamic engagement in enriching the entire community; the chorus, our audience, and beyond. Though our origins lie in the lesbian community, we strive to be an inclusive chorus. We are open to everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. All DWC concert music is signed in ASL. Recent concerts included a performance with Cris Williamson and a tribute to the women of country music.

Take Note! is a (mostly) a cappella ensemble composed of select members of the Denver Women’s Chorus. Formed by pioneering singers in DWC, Take Note! took the stage for the first time on April 27, 1985. More than 30 years later, Take Note! continues to delight and inspire DWC audiences and at community events in the Denver area with their unique sound. 17
