"We want bread, but we want roses too!"

We began in 1978 as the DC Area Feminist Chorus, were known as Bread and Roses Feminist Singers from 1983 to the fall of 2009, and became Fortissima in October 2009.

We have the same commitment to music and social justice regardless of the name.

We are open to all sopranos and altos, regardless of gender, and without audition.

Open House for New Singers

We will hold a open house for new singers
September 15, Tuesday, 7:00 – 8:30 pm.
Our regular place (National City Christian Church), night and time.

Come join us and see if we're the right fit for you. (We are the chorus your mother warned you about.)

If you can't make it on the 15th, you are still welcome to visit—but will be fewer noshes.
