A note from the Artistic Director, Dr. Tim Sharp:
“This is a moment to celebrate women composers, and to delight in their gift to the choral art. We are privileged to perform this music, and even more privileged to get to mingle with the women composers that created these choral pieces. Rarely is there gathered in one place, at the same time, a sampling of contemporary choral composition by women composers as we will see and hear in this concert. There is every reason to believe that this is shaping up to be a ‘golden age’ of music by female composers.”
Directions to Cascia Hall’s Performing Arts Center:
Enter the Cascia Hall campus through the main entrance off Utica Ave. The Performing Arts Center and parking for it will be straight ahead at the end of the drive.
