Quote from VOX Femina Los Angeles:
When COVID-19 left us with our concerts cancelled, we found solace through music. Embracing resilience in this time of adversity, a lot of research on how to do a virtual choir, and the gracious support of our community, VOX Femina Los Angeles made its virtual choral debut with Moira Smiley's Refugee. Originally an anchor piece in Journey to Refuge: Finding Home, our state of political unrest, economic instability, and discomfort in facing the unknown, we felt that Refugee's message of empathy and understanding was one that we all needed to hear.
We are all much closer to being refugees than we want to imagine. - Moira Smiley
