 Women Sing

A day of singing and empowerment

Women Sing is an all-day choral festival open to all high school female identifying individuals and non binary treble singers. Join the inclusive community of strong, proud singers that make up the Cecilians for the day, connecting with students from across Iowa as well as faculty members from multiple academic areas at UNI.  The event culminates in an evening performance in the Great Hall at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.

Elaine Hagenberg


This year is even more special as we welcome Iowan composer Elaine Hagenberg to campus to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Women Sing.  All participants will perform in the world premiere of a newly commissioned work "Shadow River” which was written for this event!




Price per participant is $36. This includes music, lunch, dinner and a Women Sing t-shirt. If you'll need a parking permit for an individual vehicle, that can be added for $2.50 (buses will not need a parking permit).
