March is Women’s History Month – and while we think that every month is good time to include women’s work in concert program, it’s a particularly appropriate time to reflect on women’s work and impact through time.
There are several exciting concerts to look forward to this weekend – and we at WPA are thrilled to support each of the bellow concerts with funding through a Performance Grant.
Also on Saturday, the Portland Youth Philharmonic will be performing Marion Bauer’s Sun Splendor – a rarely performed work! In addition to the concert itself, Dr. Susan Pickett will give a lecture on Bauer as well as moderate a panel on women composers on Friday, March 4. (ICYMI: there is a review of Pickett’s book on the Bauer sisters here.)
Congratulations to all of the Performance Grant winners presenting events this weekend! What a fantastic mix of music to look forward to!
