We Can Swing It!
with special guest, MoodSwings Jazz Band
Experience a time in our nation when women stepped directly and powerfully into the workforce, all living out the many varied roles of “Rosie the Riveter.” Through songs, stories and choreographed scenes, the world premiere of We Can Swing It! tells the story of these pioneers, from the forests of the Pacific Northwest to the foundries of Pittsburgh and many places in between. See this thrilling World Premiere theatrical concert commission — written and produced by Eric Lane Barnes — along with a captivating collaboration with local all-female ensemble, MoodSwings Jazz Band. This unique and powerful show will weave music and real-life memoirs into an unforgettable concert experience!
