The right to self-expression has never been equally or easily granted. Ladders must be climbed, glass ceilings shattered. The fight for voice and place is arduous but crucial. Imagine our world without the writing of Toni Morrison, the artwork of Frida Kahlo, or the architecture of Jeanne Gang. Women shape the world and their influence on symphonic music is far greater than the average classical music program might lend you to believe. In Hear Me Roar, we challenge the traditional image of the classical music composer (white, male…dead) and present the work of artists from all over the world and spanning nearly a century. This concert celebrates women’s unique voices in classical music and places their work center stage…where it has always belonged.
