Grande Dames of American Music
Our next concert, Saturday, May 7th, will be a special experience. It features the music of 17 women composers from the United States. Each composer in our program has had an effect on musical life in America, music education, and on other prominent composers – male and female.
This music is touching, beautiful, and well crafted. This concert is for everyone. Our selections are sure to educate and open your eyes and ears. Contemporary composers include Lita Grier, Regina Harris Baiocchi, Gwyneth Walker, Diane Bish, and Lena McLin. We will also honor women from the past: Dana Suesse, Kay Swift, Marion Bauer, and Katherine K. Davis, among others.
You’ll hear music from composers who are connected to other famous names in the history of music, including George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, and Nadia Boulanger.
Come join us as we reveal our feminine side on Saturday, May 7th at 7:30 PM at the first United Methodist Church of Oak Park. View ticket information.
