The Solidarity Singers will give their Annual May Day Performance, with a special focus on Pete Seeger, marking his 100th birthday.
“We are a street chorus, not a concert choir. Our preferred venue is a picket line. We try to lift the spirits of people engaged in struggle and help them to carry on. Only a few of us know how to read music, but we all know which side we’re on.”
Over the past twenty years, the Solidarity Singers have appeared hundreds of times on picket lines, at rallies for labor and other progressive causes, and in occasional concert settings, including the annual May Day celebrations at the Botto House/American Labor Museum, commemorations of the hundredth anniversary of Woody Guthrie’s birth, and many others.
The group is available for scheduling through its director, Bennet D. Zurofsky, at (973) 642-0885, or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upcoming event: May Day Festival at the Botto House, Wednesday, May 1, 2019, 7:00 p.m., The American Labor Museum at the Botto House, 83 Norwood Street, Haledon, NJ 07508
