Half the Sky

Concert Canceled for

2019-2020 Season

Sadly with the increased severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been forced to also cancel the final concert of the season.

Current ticket holders - at this time we are offering you the following options.

  • Donate your ticket. Your tax-deductible donation today means that the next time you join us for a concert, the choir will be here to share the joy of live choral music. 

  • Full refund. CAE will offer patrons who purchased tickets to Half the Sky a full refund.​


Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you in October 2020.


Please contact us here to donate or request a refund.

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the culmination of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States.  We celebrate this great success while recognizing that much of the work of attaining gender equality remains undone.  According to a Chinese aphorism, “women hold up half the sky.”  We are all blessed when our community and our world works to unleash everyone’s full potential.


As this anniversary arrives, CAE is excited to sing a concert of music by female composers, including a world premiere by Karen P. Thomas, Artistic Director and Conductor of the Seattle Pro Musica.  We will highlight the great work undertaken by the Jeremiah Program to support single mothers in our community.
