Chamber Music | Lara Downes: Phenomenal Women with guests Nicole Cabell and JIJI

Women have long composed phenomenal music, but their music has not always been championed or performed. Seeking to change that reality and give voice to under-represented female composers are pianist Lara Downes, soprano Nicole Cabell, and guitarist JIJI. Throughout this refreshingly diverse program, the trio explores works by Margaret Bonds, Billie Holiday, Meredith Monk, Florence Price, and more.
