International Women’s Day Concert: Celebrating Women in Performance and Composition
08/03/2019, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This concert showcases musical works written, directed, arranged and performed by women, as well as pieces where a female character takes centre stage. Current composers are programmed alongside those who have an anniversary this year (Clara Schumann and Lili Boulanger) or last (Morfydd Owen), with genres including chamber music, art song, opera, folk song, jazz and musical theatre. The evening also reflects the global reach of music, with a range of repertoire drawn from Germany, France, Switzerland, England, Wales, the United States, Czech and China. With well-known and well-loved compositions alongside world premieres, this will be an event that offers an artistically diverse and inspiring experience for all.
