Concord Women's Chorus Performs "Women of the Americas"

Wednesday, June 3 at 7:30 pm
The Concord Women's Chorus, of Concord, Mass., will perform "Women of the Americas",
a concert  highlighting dramatic music composed by women from Canada, the U.S.A.., Venezuela and Puerto Rico specifically for women's voices. The choir will perform twice in Montreal: at the UCM on June 3,  and at Christ Church Cathedral on Thursday, June 4 at 7:30 pm.where they will be joined by the Montreal- based chorus, Modulation, a benefit  for Chez Doris, a non-profit organization that offers educational and recreational activities, social services and professional services for women in need.  Suggested donation: $20 per ticket. Students and children attend for free.
The Concord Women's Chorus has been in the forefront of performing music by women composers, who are often under-represented in the concert hall. The program will include works by two of Canada's most talented contemporary composers, Eleanor Daley and Ruth Watson Henderson; music by former Sweet Honey in the Rock member and prolific composer Ysaye M.Barnwell, and a number of contrasting and compelling works from Venezuelan and Puerto Rican women composers on the music scene today, Modesta Bor and Diana Sáez. "Women of the Americas" shows CWC's dedication to presenting high-quality works for women's voices, a textured and varied program that brings new music--and especially music written by women--to life, and educates our communities about the relevance, power, and beauty of this repertoire.
