Event Details

Fall Masterworks Concert | Celebrating Women Composers: Past & Present
The Lubbock Chorale
St. Paul’s on the Plains Episcopal Church

Saturday, October 12th


Tickets: $15 – $25

In his poem, “Anthem for St. Cecilia’s Day,” the great 20th-century poet W.H. Auden wrote, “Blessed Cecilia, appear in visions to all musicians, appear and inspire: Translated Daughter, come down and startle composing mortals with immortal fire.” Despite the symbolic role that Cecilia plays as patron saint of music, female composers are dramatically underrepresented on most choral programs and recordings.

The Lubbock Chorale’s season-opening concert seeks to engage this lacuna by performing selections from the long history of creativity by women writers and musicians. The Chorale is thrilled to premiere a work commissioned for this concert by composer Dr. Elyse Kahler, with text by our very own Dr. Allison Boye!

From the Medieval mysticism of Hildegard of Bingen, to masters such as Fanny Hensel, Lili Boulanger, Eleanor Daley, and Gwyneth Walker, audiences will enjoy a vibrantly rich mosaic of choral music. Guest soloists and instrumentalists will join the Chorale for this enriching evening.

Special thanks to the CH foundation for their generous support of The Lubbock Chorale.

Tickets are available for Seniors and Students. Child tickets are also available for children under 12
