The Longing of the Spirit, A Celebration of Women Composers
March 11, 2018
DENVER — Women composers will be the focus of the Colorado Chorale’s concert at Central Presbyterian Church Sunday, March 11th at 4:00 p.m.
“Women have composed music since ancient times, but most have been overlooked, forgotten, or barred from publishing,” explained Kevin Padworski, Artistic Director for the Chorale. “This unique concert will introduce audiences to female composers, ancient and modern.”
“We planned this concert a year ago, but it is especially relevant in light of the #metoo movement,” he noted. March is Women’s History month.
The oldest music to be performed, Laus Trinitati, is a 900-year old chant by Hildegard of Bingen, arranged for six parts by Felicia Sandler.
The concert will also feature the premiere of two new pieces, one by jazz performer and composer Deanna Witkowski and the other by Laurie Betts Hughes of Seattle.
Tickets are free for those up to 21 years of age, $15 for Seniors and $20 for adults.
