This project is funded in part by Orange County Government through the Arts & Cultural Affairs Program.
This International Womens Day concert will feature solo voice compositions written by female composers Cathy Berberian, Meredith Monk, Gilda Lyons, Susan Botti, Kamala Sankaram & Alex Temple. These works, all for solo performer, were chosen for their ability to empower and represent the talents of female singers. The concert aims to celebrate the strength and creativity of female performers and composers, and promises to be an evening of beautiful and inspiring music.
“Not only are these pieces for solo performer, they are composed by female singers,” says Pierson. “I chose this theming because as a female identifying singer, there is a lot of empowerment performing alone, at times with my own accompaniment, and in representing fellow females.”
