Chisholm for President… A new musical sharing

Popping back on here to let you know that we will have a sharing of current work-in-progress ‘Chisholm 72’ on Friday 22 November 1pm at Leeds College of Music. It’s about Shirley Chisholm, first Black Congresswoman who ran for the Democratic nomination in 1972. Shirley is the clearsighted, fierce, passionate woman warrior for justice that we need today. The musical is being created by two of Leeds own brilliant warriors for justice Zodwa Nyoni  and Testament . We’re working with students from Musical Theatre course of Leeds College of Music, the performing talents of Flo Wilson, Dermot Daly, and Justina Aina, and the musical talents of Michael Lovelock, Neil Innes, Nick Svarc, and Isaac Heywood. We’d love you to come see what we’re making – drop me a line on alex@leedsstudio.org if you want to come along.
