Wow, what a concert!
The evening was truly historic. We presented the choral music of 17 women composers. We were fortunate and most grateful to have present as our guests some composers whose works we performed: Lita Grier, Lena McLin, and Regina Harris Baiocchi.
We were also thrilled to have as our guest, Mr. Aaron Gandy, who is the Artistic Advisor for the Kay Swift Memorial Trust and who flew in specially to join us for the concert. Our performance of “God Is Our Refuge,” which was written by Kay Swift, was the world premiere. We feel honored to have been given the opportunity by Katharine Weber and Mr. Gandy to introduce the work.
The program included a variety of sounds and styles that demonstrated the versatility and range of our organization. What a wonderful end to an amazing season that included magnificent performances of more uncovered gems, more world premieres, and rediscoveries of some remarkable composers.
There is more to come as we plan for our astonishing 10th season.
