Did someone say “Louder Now?” On March 29th, during Women’s History Month, take a musical Detour with members of ANNA Crusis Women’s Choir as part of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s (PMA) “Final Friday” series.

Save the date! Spread the word! Philly’s own fierce ANNA Crusis has been raising the roof (musically) for nearly 45 years with louder messages of hope, resistance, and compassion. ANNA’s music is always championing the causes of women, immigrants, youth, minorities, LGBTQ community and more. Join us in PMA’s American Gallery for a fun night of musical adventure and artistic synergy — sure to surprise!

We’ll be joined in various galleries by Drum Like A Lady, LADAMA, Marie HinsonDJ Wassup GinaBeth Heinley, Caldera Magazine, and Philly Printworks. What a night it will be with entertainment continuing from 5 pm till 8 pm! And won’t you be glad you steered away from the ordinary.
