1140 Park Avenue, NYC
On March 20th, Voices of Ascension will celebrate a thousand years of choral and vocal masterpieces by great women composers.
From the haunting twelfth century chants of Hildegard of Bingen to the world premier of a new work by contemporary master Bora Yoon, Music Director Dennis Keene has selected the most captivating works of women artists through the ages.
Though often unsung and sometimes forced to remain in disguise behind male protectors, these inspired women creators will get their rightful place in the spotlight at this groundbreaking Voices of Ascension concert.
Featuring European masters like Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, and Ethel Smyth to American greats like Amy Beach, Florence Price, and Jocelyn Hagen, this performance will also be the New York premiere of works from Lili Boulanger, Cécile Chaminade, and Imogen Holst.
A Voice of Her Own will take you on a musical journey across the centuries through the genius of these extraordinary women. The selected works will range from the deeply personal and mystical to sacred services of inspirational beauty and secular songs of depth and passion.
