Solidarity: It Can’t Be Beat!

About the CCLC

The Charm City Labor Chorus was founded in 2008 by jazz/blues recording artist Pam Parker to participate in the rich labor culture of the region. We sing songs from the labor and civil rights movements and struggles for peace, social justice and racial equity.

We sing to raise awareness of the current and historic struggles for equality and justice, to motivate people to act as agents of social change, and to build energy and solidarity within progressive communities. We are building a chorus that is diverse in race, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, class, culture, religious affiliation and physical ability among people sharing a commitment to labor struggles and social justice.

We present an annual Spring concert and perform at rallies, small venues, and union conferences throughout the year. Periodically we perform the National Anthem at AFL-CIO Night at Camden Yards. The chorus has now grown to about 30 members
