The annual Women's Works concert will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 18 at the First Unitarian Society of Ithaca, celebrating Women's History Month with a day of live music performances.
The event will feature special guest composer and performer Shruthu Rajasekar, who "explores intersections of cultural identity in her music and will be a Marshall scholar in the UK later this year." She is a senior at Princeton trained in Carnatic and Western classical music idioms. Donations of $10 are suggested and appreciated, and refreshments will be provided after the event.
Performers will also include members of Women's Works, the CSMA Recorder Ensemble, as well as guest performers in Marija Bosnar and Danbi Lee, along with a chamber chorus. Vocal and instrumental works by Viardot, Caccini, Aleotti, Gubaidulina and Larsen will also be involved.
Women's Works state that the intention of the concert is "building bridges: Bridges connect embankments of land and allow traffic to flow over the gap from one bank to the other. The concert reflects on ways building bridges can benefit out lives and connections with others with performances of music by women composers."
