Carrying the Torch: Songs that Celebrate Remarkable Women

Presented by Cantilena - a women's chorale at The Eliot Church of Newton, UCC, Newton MA

May 04 2019
Carrying the Torch: Songs that Celebrate Remarkable Women

A choral concert highlighting music inspired by and created by the ground-breaking achievements of some of history’s renowned women.

Music Director Jennifer Kane presents a sampling of works which honor women who have pushed beyond the social boundaries of their time, thus transforming both the role of women in society and the course of humanity in a predominantly male-dominated historical narrative.

This program tells the stories of strong women: a young Malala Yousafzai advocating for girls’ safe access to education, Harriet Tubman leading dozens of her brothers and sisters to freedom as an Underground Railroad conductor
