Women’s work and themes have been marginalized in the past and it continues to this day. This makes it even more important to celebrate the work of women composers and arrangers.
It has been such a pleasure to add this body of work to continued exploration of diverse and beautiful vocal music. Please join for a celebration of this special music.
