About the Program
NEW THIS YEAR! Prioritizing Black and indigenous participation, the mission of the Ujima Singers is to bring musical and cultural collectivity to the Black community here in Western Mass! Director Evelyn Harris specializes in music as activism, and aims to create a space for intergenerational education through song.
This program is a reimagination of the Ku'umba Women's Choir, with new focus on gathering Black singers (of all gender identities) around their ancestral music.
NCMC is proud to offer several tuition options for participants.
• Those with the financial means will be asked to pay $180 per season.
• Those with limited financial means can choose to pay any amount between $100-180 per season, without applying for financial aid.
• Those who apply for financial aid and qualify can participate in this program at no cost.
Meetings will take place on Mondays from 5:30-6:45pm.
