Social Ecology Project
Social Ecology Project derives from the utopian philosophy of human evolution by social theorist and political philosopher Murray Bookchin. By combining the nature of biology and society into a third "thinking nature" beyond biochemistry and physiology, social ecology proposes ethical principles to replace society's propensity for hierarchy and domination with that of democracy and freedom, creating a more complete, conscious, ethical, and rational nature. Humanity is the latest development from the long history of organic development on Earth. With the use of physical, mental, and spiritual conditions, Social Ecology Project seeks to liberate musical expression, without being constrained by tonal limitations, rhythmic predetermination, or harmonic rules. Harmony, movement, melody, speed, rhythm, the placing and spacing of ideas, time and phrases all share the same value.
If we do not do the impossible, we shall be faced with the unthinkable.
Sing in Solidarity is a socialist movement choir in New York City that performs music from the international and domestic left. We learn these songs to build connections between movements, cultures, and organizations, and to support ongoing struggles in our communities. We sing on picket lines and at demonstrations, and hold concerts to fund-raise for the causes close to our hearts.
We are a resource, a space for all progressive people, of all singing levels, to come together, sing, have fun, and learn how to be song leaders. Fighting songs of the Left have helped generations before us, and we are here to build a socialist future now.
The choir maintains an affiliation with NYC-DSA, though membership in NYC-DSA is not a prerequisite for membership in the choir.
