Kansas Wesleyan University’s music department will honor the contributions of women to music with a special event, “Voices of Eve: An Evening of Women in Music,” on Oct. 7. The evening, highlighted by a concert featuring the KWU Wind Ensemble, recognizes the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th Amendment and will include world premieres of five scores by female composers. Admission is free.
The event gets underway at 5:45 p.m. with a special “Concert in Context” presentation in Fitzpatrick Auditorium, including a discussion of women’s suffrage and the importance of the 19th Amendment by Dr. Anita Specht, KWU history professor. There will also be comments from the composers and Dr. Milt Allen, chair of the KWU Music Department, all designed to help put the concert into historical perspective.
The scene then shifts to Sams Chapel, where the KWU Middle School Honor Band will perform beginning at 6:30 p.m. A brief intermission will follow before KWU’s Wind Ensemble takes the stage at 7 p.m.
