Benefit Concert for the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre
Come and join us for an evening of gorgeous orchestral music, all composed by women, played in a beautiful acoustic venue by an orchestra of some of Vancouver's top freelance professional musicians.  

Every penny of ticket sales goes to the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre (DEWC). For 38 years, the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre has provided a safe place for women and children in the Downtown Eastside. They provide practical support, basic necessities and hot nutritious meals to over 500 women and children every day. They support women to make positive changes in their lives by connecting them to a continuum of services including outreach, advocacy, wellness, recreation, housing and skills development.


The concert is at the Blusson Spinal Chord Centre Atrium (818 W. 10th).  

The program features music written by women composers, and is rarely performed in orchestral concerts:

Concerto #1 by Maddalena Laura Sirmen;
The Contented House by Jean Coulthard;
Sicilienne from the Gaelic Symphony by Amy Beach;
Nostalgia by Jocelyn Morlock;
Flute Concertino by Cecile Chaminade;
Scherzo from the Serenade in D major by Ethyl Smyth.
