Event Description:
Trailblazing pianist Lara Downes presents a revelatory program celebrating the contributions of phenomenal women to the past, present, and future of American music, with special guests Alicia Hall Moran, mezzo soprano and harpist Bridget Kibbey. With a special focus on the works of pioneering African American composer and Arkansas native Florence Price, this music tells the story of what women and girls can contribute to the world when they are given a chance. Other composers featured in this intimate performance include Clara Schumann, Amy Beach, Jennifer Higdon, Billie Holiday, Joni Mitchell, Paola Prestini and Nina Simone. Holes in the Sky is inspired by the words of artist Georgia O’Keeffe: “I want music that makes holes in the sky”.

“A charming selection of pieces by some powerful composers – a celebration of otherness, as well as an act of repatriation.” –The Washington Post
“A panoply of the finest American women musicians across all genres.” –WQXR
