Music by women is outrageously marginalised – we took a look at the recent concert programmes of many of Yorkshire’s other large choral societies and were shocked to find that NONE had any visible programming of music by female composers. So in our small way we’re trying to provide some balance…
…join us for this fascinating evening of music which give us wonderful compositions from the medieval mystic Hildegard (think timeless plainchant), the passionate Baroque music of Barbara Strozzi, romantic lyricism from Fanny Hensel and Clara Schumann, Lili Boulanger’s impressionism and a kaleidoscope of contemporary music, vivid and approachable!
If you are a choral director or singer, why not join us for our linked workshop to explore this wonderful music in more depth…details coming soon.
If you can’t get to this concert don’t worry – we have made a commitment to programming music by women in ALL our concerts.
Tickets are limited in number for this concert – please book in advance from TicketSource to avoid disappointment
