A Star of the First Magnitude: Contemporary Women Composers - SAN FRANCISCO
What do I fear? I am a part of infinity,
I am a part of the great power of the universe,
A single world within a million worlds,
A star of the first magnitude
Which is the last to be extinguished.
Triumph to live, Triumph to breath, Triumph to exist!
Edith Södergran

Women are writing exciting, expressive, and important music, and yet remain sorely underrepresented in traditional concert programming. Sacred and Profane is thrilled to bring you a concert of music written by women  all living and working composers except for the original feminist composer: 11th century abbess Hildegard von Bingen. Our concert will feature Quilt Songs, a collection of pieces inspired by quilts and composed by Alice Parker, Libby Larsen, Gabriela Lena Frank, Ysäye Barnwell, and Carol Barnett. We will also bring you works by the Swedish composer Tina Andersson; the Russian-English composer Alissa Firsova; the American composer Caroline Mallonée; and a setting of Edith Södergrans feminist poem "Triumf att finnas till" by our much-championed Swedish composer, Karin Rehnqvist.
