THE MOTHERHOOD CONCERT:

TRUTH SET TO MUSIC

is the first concert of its kind that spotlights mother composers

and their work about motherhood.

These are songs about motherhood

for everyone.

On August 2, 2021, Parent Artist Advocacy League (PAAL) will present the virtual concert, showcasing the original work of mom composer/lyricists, as brought to life by mom singers and musicians from Broadway stages and beyond.

.​

Proceeds from the concert, which is produced in collaboration with Maestra Moms and Philadelphia Women’s Theatre Festival, will go directly to the mother artists - first, to pay every participant a fair union wage, and next, to provide a “PAAL Blank Page Grant for a Mother Musician.” Together, these two funding streams will give financial support to the mother artists, providing the time and space they need to create art while raising families.

  •  

Songs and spoken-word testimonials from well-known artist moms will be woven into an inspiring and transformative performance.

PAAL is committed to vertical 50/50 which requires at least 50% of oversight representatives and all finalists accepted  self-identify as mothers of color and the Black lived experience. This concert also opens a safe and welcoming space for non-binary/non-conforming, transgender folk who identify as mothers.
