Program Notes

Thank you for joining the UCR Concert Band for its season-opening program celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and women’s constitutional right to vote! After 144 years of perseverance and courage, 26 million women were given access to their essential right to vote. We pay tribute to the trailblazers and visionaries and honor the stories and contributions that impacted our nation and draw greater awareness to the role each of us has in creating change in our communities. The concert explores the historic suffragist movement and how it inspires us in 2020 to seek greater civic engagement and equity.

I am standing on the shoulders of the ones who came before me
I am stronger for their courage, I am wiser for their words
I am lifted by their longing for a fair and brighter future
I am grateful for their vision, for their toiling on this Earth
