Out of the shadows
Early music by women composers

The Women’s Antique Vocal Ensemble (WAVE) will present a concert of music composed by women from the medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods. From a Byzantine nun in the 9th century to women of nobility and nuns in Italian convents at the end of the 16th century, the music spans over 800 years. Composers include Kassia, Hildegard, Raphaella Aleotti, Lucretia Vizzana, Caterina Assandra, Chiara Margarita Cozzolani, Barbara Strozzi, and Isabella Leonarda. Along with Baroque string players, the concert will feature the newly installed Opus 36 organ, which is modeled after the early Northern German/Dutch style Baroque tracker organs with 2 manuals, 22 stops, and more than 800 pipes.
