VOICES FOR THE VOICELESS

In recognition of the traditional underrepresentation of women in the fields of music composition and poetry, female-identifying artists will work from the theme Voices to the Voiceless, producing original writing to be set to music and then performed both aurally and visually at an event on April 7, 2019 at the First Methodist Church onUniversity Blvd. Subject matters range from motherhood and family heritage to being a woman intoday’s society. The concert will feature new works commissioned especially for the project.The AWC views not only the inaugural concert, but the process of creation leading to the Voices to theVoiceless performance, as positive modeling of what is possible for other artists at ASU and beyond: in response to limited visibility of women in specific areas of the arts, visibility is being created through methods that support both community and professional growth.
