Women of the World

Presented by Salem State University Center for Creative and Performing Arts at Salem State University Recital Hall

Four women from four corners of the globe comprise the award winning vocal quartet Women of the World.

2018 winners of the Ward Swingle Award at VokalTotal (Graz, Germany), 2017 world champions of the International A Cappella competition OPEN by Varsity Vocals, 2014 Harmony Sweepstakes National champions, nominees of the 2013 Boston Music Awards and 2014 Independent Music Awards, Women of the World has extensively toured North America, Europe and Asia and has collaborated with industry legends Bobby McFerrin and African icon, Angelique Kidjo.  Their repertoire honors numerous global folk traditions in 32 languages.  The ensemble will be joined by percussionist Patrick Simard at their Salem State performance.

The genesis of Women of the World came about through connections made at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and was formed to bring women musicians from across the globe onto a common musical platform to collaborate and create.

Women of the World continues to serve as cultural ambassadors of peace and unity through music and has delighted audiences at venues like Carnegie Hall, Blue Note Jazz Club, Boston Symphony Hall, the Kennedy Center, The Apollo Theater as well as through collaborations with the United Nations, among others.
