She Speaks: Voice of Time

She Speaks_WEB

She Speaks is a series of concerts curated by ANAM Fellow Gemma Tomilnson celebrating female composition of varying eras, styles and nationalities. The three concerts presented continue the ongoing efforts of musicians passionate about exposing the extensive and meaningful contribution of women composers.

In Voice of Time, women who defied the cultural norms and fought to be heard over their male counterparts will be venerated, with music composed from Medieval through to Twentieth Century eras. With an underlying
intensity, the program for this concert evokes passion, spirituality, love and despair. And, in celebration of International Women's Day, the music will be presented by a cast of female musicians.
