The Eastman School of Music is pleased to collaborate with the Susan B. Anthony Center for Women’s Leadership in presenting this special concert as part of a year-long celebration throughout Rochester of the centenary of women’s suffrage in New York State.

The concert will feature faculty members, students, and ensembles from Eastman, and will integrate important texts and photographs from the suffragist era with the musical selections.

The program will showcase music by women composers, including the premiere of a piece for vocal quartet and piano four-hands by New York State native Lori Laitman, based on suffragist poetry.

Eastman performers (male and female) and Eastman female composers who want to participate in this historic concert should fill out the form below and submit it to Dr. Sylvie Beaudette by Friday, January 27, 2017 (contact information on the form). Proposals will be reviewed and a final program will be announced shortly after the submission deadline.

I look forward to seeing you all in March!
