To mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment recognizing women's right to vote, Cerddorion performs music composed by and about women. We have commissioned prominent New York composer Sidney Boquiren to write a piece for the occasion: "Arise" sets to music the words of some of the pioneers of women's suffrage, both famous and lesser-known. The program will also feature the winners of Cerddorion's eighth annual Emerging Composers Competition.
