APSU's Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, Women's Studies Program and Student Affairs Office present a concert by Judy Gorman at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 11, in Gentry Auditorium, Kimbrough Building.
Gorman, a New York City native, recently released a new album titled, “The Rising of Us All.”
Speaking of the album, Gorman says, “The songs were written after I watched from my living room window the attacks on the Twin Towers. Living so close to the Trade Center, you could see it, hear it, taste it and smell it. I was asked to sing at various memorials after the attacks and, as a result, decided to make an album.
“The songs resonate with a theme of peace and justice, women and work, struggle and celebration and how they are all interconnected.”
Gorman earned a B.A. in Literature and an M.A. in Art History. She also lectures on the “Multicultural History of Women and Music/Finding Our Own VoiceAll of Us.”
According to Michael Kleff, producer and host on German Public Radio: “Judy Gorman? Let's put it this way: real music in a sea of mediocrity. While listening to her rich and powerful voice and her thoughtful lyrics, you feel that there is a woman who knows what she is talking about. And that's why so many people are stirred by her appearance on stage.”
Gorman has performed in clubs, festivals, universities and peace and social events in 48 states and 10 European countries. Gorman says, “I would love to do a tour in Africa, Latin America and Asia. As an American, I feel other countries have so much to teach us.”
