WOMEN ROCK features the music of Carole King, Holly Knight, Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Pat Benatar, Minnie Riperton, Heart and Carly Simon and honors these powerful female rockers and songwriters who changed rock and roll forever. Soloists include 2017 Grammy Award Nominee singer/songwriter Cassidy Catanzaro, star of A Night with Janis Joplin Katrina Rose Dideriksen and the Broadway, TV and Jazz vocal star Shayna Steele who most recently starred in Hairspray Live on NBC.
A portion of the proceeds from productions of Women Rock will be donated to the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls (WMRC), a non-profit music and mentoring organization that empowers girls and women through music education, volunteerism, and activities that foster safer spaces, self-respect, leadership skills, creativity and collaboration.
WMRC offers year-round and summer programs serving girls and gender non-binary youth ages 5-18. The Girls Rock! camp summer sessions (for ages 8-18), and Jumpstart summer rock camp (for ages 5-7), bring together intentionally diverse groups to explore identity and self-expression, ask questions of the world, build community, and act as leaders in their own process of musical creation. The non-profit also offers a
three day Ladies Rock Camp intensive (for adults ages 19 and up), based upon their youth model. Year-round programming includes after school Rhythm & Voice workshops and Rock Out Today mini-camps in NYC public schools, as well as an Arts & Activism Fellowship which provides opportunities for teen women from low and moderate-income households to create their own podcasts, and explore the powerful combination of art and social justice.
