And Yet She Persisted
And Yet She Persisted explores the powerful and diverse world of female composers. You will bask in beautiful melodies and harmonies crafted by Pauline Viardot and Amy Beach. Composer Libby Larsen unmasks the infamous gun wielding Calamity Jane that we perhaps picture in our minds with settings of intimate and honest letters to her daughter toward the end of her life. Jane is revealed in her soaring truth, strength and vulnerability. Julia Seeholzers cycle  Portraits of Disquiet was originally composed in reaction to the 2016 U. S. presidential election. She could not have known that it would feel even more potent in our present day. As a trans-woman who was raised in the Mormon tradition, the poet, Kendall A. remains off the grid quite purposefully. The first song of this ground breaking cycle is deeply personal, a letter to her mom and dad. The second piece follows as a community outcry for the devastation of Ferguson in 2014. Kendall heightens the drama with quotes directly from Dantes Inferno in Italian. Barbara Strozzis Lagrime Mie, a baroque lament is musically quoted in Seeholzers opening line. Her scope broadens even further In the third song, to encompass the wonder and the great tragedy of life; of humanity marching forward through space and time.

Long time collaborators, Carrie Hennessey, soprano and Jennifer Reason, piano breathe life into each piece to share these poignant stories.
