GIRLS ON FIRE

February 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

No, we’re not talking about the Alicia Keys song or Katniss Everdeen. These women composers may have been overlooked in their time, but their music is equally beautiful and masterfully written as any of their male counterparts. Featured is the first symphony composed by an American woman, Amy Beach’s Gaelic Symphony and a work by a living composer who often writes for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, August Read Thomas. Once the head of music at what is now Clark Atlanta University, Florence Price wrote a stunning violin concerto, which you’ll hear performed by Atlanta Opera violinist (formerly of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra), Helen Kim.
