Athena’s Voice, is a unique celebration of the female voice in the creation of choral music. The choir will perform diverse and eclectic works ranging from the popular sounds of Carly Simon’s ultimate working woman anthem, “Let the River Run,” to the works of Fanny Mendelssohn (sister of the famous Felix Mendelssohn), who had a successful career as a pianist and composer in her own right. The concert will also feature Gwyneth Walker’s “How Can I Keep From Singing,” Eliza Gilkyson’s “Requiem,” Ysaye Barnwell’s “Wanting Memories,” and Rosaphanye Powell’s “Down by the Riverside”.
Abbie Betinis, a Minneapolis-based composer, has written a simple, yet profound work about 9/11 – her personal response to the helplessness and sorrow she felt following the tragedies of that day. “Blessed be the Lord, My Rock” is a profound work that speaks the universal language of contemplative sorrow.
