Inspired by the hard-fought battle to win the right for women to vote, we celebrate barrier-blasters and trailblazers with works by women composers and/or based on texts by women authors and poets, including Alice Parker, Hildegard von BingenJocelyn Hagen, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Georgia Douglas Johnson, Maya Angelou and more.

Since 2017, the Stephen Paulus Emerging Composers Competition has led to the creation of dozens of new works and the premiere of three outstanding winners. The winner of the 20-21 competition, Ethan Soledad, composed, When I Rise Up, which was performed by True Concord in this concert. The text of the piece is from Georgia Douglas Johnson‘s poem of the same name.

I feel there is something unexplored about woman that only a woman can explore.
