2021 - 2022 Concerts

Christ United Methodist Church

According to a Chinese aphorism, “women hold up half the sky”—we are all blessed when our community and world work to unleash everyone’s full potential. 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the culmination of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. We celebrate this great success (just a bit delayed) while recognizing that much of the work of attaining gender equality remains undone.  Rochester Mayor Kim Norton and Ally Hanten Ebert, Executive Director of the Jeremiah Program, will be our special guests for a concert of all female composers.
