Great Choral Music by Women Composers

A program of considerable musical richness traces the path of composers from the medieval abbess Hildegard of Bingen to nineteenth century prodigies Clara Schumann and Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel; the early twentieth century Americans Amy Beach and Florence Price; and Lili Boulanger, a student of Gabriel Fauré; culminating in works by composers of the last 40 years. The world premiere of a work by Korean-American Bora Yoon commissioned by VoA will be a highlight of the concert.
