40 years and counting: We Feel Like Goin' On

Still working to sing truth to power.

Forty years, and still making strong music, and fierce resistance, when and where we can.

We Are the Chorus Your Mother Warned You About

Fortissima members June 2017

Our 39th Anniversary Concert, June 2017.

"We want bread, but we want roses too!"

We began in 1978 as the DC Area Feminist Chorus, were known as Bread and Roses Feminist Singers from 1983 to the fall of 2009, and became Fortissima in October 2009.

We have the same commitment to music and social justice regardless of the name.

We are open to all sopranos and altos, regardless of gender, and without audition.
