Women Making Music: Honoring the Work of Musicologist Judith Tick, a Public Talk and Gala Concert
Presented by Women and Music Mix
February 3, 2013
The evening concert, presented by The Brandeis WSRC Women and Music Mix, will celebrate historical and contemporary works by women, featuring excerpts from Maria Teresa Agnesi’s opera La Sofonisba, premieres of Ruth Lomon’s oratorio Rebekah and of Dana Maiben’s song cycle The Green House, songs of Fanny Mendelssohn accompanied on the Brandeis 1827 Viennese fortepiano, and Ruth Crawford Seeger’s searing violin sonata of 1926. The works will be performed by some of Boston’s best: pianist Sarah Bob, male soprano Robert Crowe, mezzo-soprano Pamela Dellal, violinist Gabriela Diaz, conductor Jane Ring Frank, gambist Laury Gutierrez and La Donna Musicale, the Mockingbird Trio (alto Elizabeth Anker, pianist John McDonald, and violist Scott Woolweaver), fortepianist Vivian Montgomery, violinist Dan Stepner and more. This triumphant concert will take place at 7:00 p.m. at Slosberg Recital Hall.
