Celebrating Women Composers
Join the College and The Mount Holyoke Symphony Orchestra in celebrating the lives and works of women throughout history with the music of alumna Karen LeFrak '69, the often overlooked contributions of Louise Farrenc to the French Romantic period, and Nkeiru Okoye's probing new monodrama and ever more popular songs of Harriet Tubman featuring soloists Synthia Pullum, soprano and Damian Norfleet, baritone.  This invigorating performance is conducted by Ng Tian Hui.

Sponsored by the Mount Holyoke Club of Chicago, Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy and the Music Department of Mount Holyoke College
