About us!

During the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order, PWSE is holding rehearsals virtually from the safety of our own individual homes. We hope to share with you what we have been working on in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned as we try to get creative with technology while staying safely distant for the benefit of our community's health. Stay well!

The Philadelphia Women's* Slavic Ensemble began in West Philly in 2011 as a few friends sharing simple Slavic folk songs, a cappella. Since then, we have grown into a community of singers of all skill level and background who celebrate the “chest voice”; a style of singing that stems from Slavic folk tradition. We choose songs from Eastern Europe that encourage creativity, boldness, and unapologetic self-expression. You can find us at all types of community events, usually with homemade flower crowns and a giant bottle of red wine.
