Rule Breakers — Game Changers
Come, come, my friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles, and see that the world is moving.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
The catalyst for the 20-21 season, this concert celebrates the indelible mark women have made on the world. Inspired by the hard-fought battle to win the right for women to vote, we celebrate barrier-blasters and trailblazers with works by women composers and/or based on texts by women authors and poets, including Alice Parker, Hildegard von Bingen, Jocelyn Hagen, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Georgia Douglas Johnson, Maya Angelou and more.
World Premiere: the 2020-21 Stephen Paulus Emerging Composers Competition winner
Since 2017, the Stephen Paulus Emerging Composers Competition has led to the creation of dozens of new works and the premiere of three outstanding winners. This year’s entries use texts from suffrage movement leaders.
YOU the audience play a key role in hearing this new work as it enters the world!
The world premiere of Jocelyn Hagen’s work has been postponed to the 2021-22 season.
I feel there is something unexplored about woman that only a woman can explore.
