WomenSing's holiday concert features songs that reflect seasonal joy and offer comfort in the face of global unrest. Highlights include Jessica Locke's Reading of the Names: The Firefighters, written in honor of the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on September 11, and the world premiere of Kirstina Rasmussen Collins' How Can I Keep From Singing? specially written for WomenSing.

The concert includes a procession to honor Santa Lucia, as celebrated in Sweden and Italy, complete with a wreath of candles. Srul Irvin Glick's Psalm 47 and Psalm 23 contrast calm meditation and the joy of these psalms. Reading of the Names and How Can I Keep From Singing? honor bravery and offer comfort.
