In recognition of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s day and in conjunction with UNITE: The United Nations International Campaign to End Violence Against Women, the Empire City Men’s Chorus presents the work of women composers. Singing the compositions of Gwyneth Walker, Dorothy Hindman, Eleanor Daley, Christina Whitten Thomas, and others, we will present poignant works that highlight the contribution of women who are currently shaping the musical landscape.
