<![CDATA[Concert: Women Composers in the Spotlight]]> Date: April 23, 2017

This concert brings women composers and their work to the forefront and is presented in conjunction with the Glyndor Gallery exhibition Outcasts: Women in the Wilderness.

Curated by American composer and educator Suzanne Farrin, her insightful commentaries guide the audience through performances that showcase a landscape of music from the Baroque period to today. The performers are soprano Tony Arnold and harpist Bridget Kibbey. The afternoon begins with music by Barbara Strozzi, a 17th-century Venetian composer and singer of opera who performed her own music and that of such contemporaries as Vivaldi. It concludes with works from current leading women composers, including Farrin’s Suono, which received its world premiere as part of the 2016 Mostly Mozart Festival, and Kaija Saariaho’s Fall. The program will be followed by a conversation with the artists. Ms. Farrin is professor and chair of the music department at Hunter College, has hosted a show for WQXR’s Q2. Her work La Dolce Morte enjoyed its world premiere performances at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the spring of 2016.

Performances begin at 2:00 p.m. and last approximately one hour with no intermission.
