This recital is titled "Amplifying Women's Voices" and consists of music written by women, primarily in the late-20th and 21st centuries. Women are a significantly underrepresented group in the field of brass instrument performance. Some studies suggest reasons for this inequity stems from lack of role models, and others point to persistent stereotypes about women who play brass. Reports continue of prevalent sexual harassment towards women in the workplace, and discriminatory and predatory behavior towards young musicians from men in positions of power. This project directly addresses these continuing issues, by raising visibility of ourselves as female brass performers, and by promoting the work of female composers.
Featuring Katy Ambrose and Lauren Hunt, horns, and Mayumi Matzen, piano.
This concert is co-sponsored by the Obermann Center and the Department of Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies.
This concert is free and open to the public.
