The Trailblazers: Women Creators and Game Changers
April 17, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm CDT
An event every day that begins at 5:30 pm, repeating until April 18, 2021
One event on April 14, 2021 at 5:30 pm
The catalyst for the 20-21 season, this concert celebrates the indelible mark women have made on the world. Inspired by the hard-fought battle to win the right for women to vote, we celebrate barrier-blasters and trailblazers with works by women composers and/or based on texts by women authors and poets, including Alice Parker (a ChoralQuest composer), Hildegard von Bingen, Jocelyn Hagen, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Georgia Douglas Johnson, Maya Angelou and more.
Since 2017, the Stephen Paulus (ACF’s co-founder; a BQ and CQ composer) Emerging Composers Competition has led to the creation of dozens of new works and the premiere of three outstanding winners. This year’s entries use texts from suffrage movement leaders.
YOU the audience play a key role in hearing this new work as it enters the world!
