SWANANNOA, N.C. — Womansong will present its fall concert, “Tender Lady,” on Oct. 23, 7:30 p.m., and on Oct. 24, 3 p.m., at Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church, 701 Warren Wilson Rd.

The concert will feature uplifting, entertaining and empowering songs with a focus on women. The title song, “Tender Lady” — written by Margie Adam and made famous by Cris Williamson — speaks to the pain many women endure and how music can help ease that pain. The concert will debut “There’s Hope,” an inspiring song by India Arie, along with other new pieces and beloved songs from the choir’s repertoire, organizers shared.

iwillcarryyouProceeds from the concert will benefit Our Voice and Helpmate.

The chorus has a CD for sale entitled “I Will Carry You: Songs of Comfort and Healing.” The title song was composed by Womansong member Lytingale. It also includes songs by local composers Sue Ford and William Stanhope, among others. Now in its second printing, its first pressing sold out within weeks after a concert. Cost is $20.

Tickets are $15/adults, $8/children under 12 and are available online.
