Seattle Labor Chorus: Home

Christmas Truce 2014


We are the musical voice of labor in Seattle- a chorus of about 40 singers from all walks of life who serve the labor community in song. We appear at rallies, protests, union meetings and on stages around the Seattle area to inspire and educate in four-part harmony. Come out and hear us sing! You can also request a performance for your union or join us in rehearsal. Click on "contact" for several ways to reach us. Also, visit us on Facebook.

And speaking of new songs:

As we did last year, we are inquiring if there is a particular song you’d like us to add to the data base of lyrics we can project on to the screen for all to follow. We encourage you to get in touch with us at to make those suggestions and we’ll arrange to get the words and learn the melody, if we can. Deadline for consideration is Feb 28. Thanks so much.

In Solidarity,

Janet Stecher & The Seattle Labor Chorus


The Seattle Labor Chorus completed our third musical album, titled

“Gonna Rise Again”

Songs on the CD include originals never recorded before, “chestnuts” ranging from Dylan’s angry “Masters of War” to “Mr. Ad-man,” a playful parody of “Mr. Sandman” satirizing our advertising saturated commercial culture. Arrangements are varied and complex, from doo-wop to jazz harmonies to Balkan dissonances.

“Gonna Rise Again” honors the history and resurgence of the labor movement and people’s movements with songs against war, for immigrant rights, about strikes and organizing, about liberation, and against exploitation.
