Raising Her Voice: An Evening of Music by Women Composers

Saturday, March 5- Two of Georgia College’s choral ensembles, Women’s Ensemble and Max Noah Singers, will present an evening of music by women composers at 7:30 p.m. in Magnolia Ballroom at the Student Activity Center. The concert will also be live-streamed at facebook.com/GCMusicDepartment. “Raising Her Voice” features compositions that span almost 400 years and includes pieces by well-known female composers such as Fanny Hensel and Clara Schumann. The choirs will also perform music by other lesser-known composers, such as Undine Smith Moore, the "Dean of Black Women Composers," and Rosephanye Powell, Auburn University Professor of Voice and winner of a “Living Legend Award” presented by California State University African Diaspora Sacred Music Festival in Los Angeles. The choirs and solo singers will perform music by eight other women composers from countries such as Italy, Canada, America, and Germany. Vocal soloists include students Anna Ogletree, Riley Greer, Megan Ostrat, and Allison Crane in collaboration with Mary Mead, saxophone. Pianist Lev Ryabinin will collaborate with Jennifer Flory, mezzo-soprano, and flutist Laurie Peebles, as well as Youngmi Kim, soprano. Choral conductors include Dr. Dana Gorzelany-Mostak, Dr. Jennifer Flory, Megan Ostrat, Conner Garmon, and Kelley Monahan. The choirs will be joined by Dr. Lev Ryabinin and Dr. Hue Jang on piano. A $5 donation is encouraged. Online donations can be made at alumni.gcsu.edu/music. All proceeds benefit music scholarships or the GC Department of Music through GCSU Foundation, Inc.
