To mark the 19th Amendment's 100th anniversary, Cathedral Choral Society has planned a weekend of events not to be missed, including the world premieres of three new works by some of today's most exciting composers: Lisa Bielawa, Jessie Montgomery, and Augusta Read Thomas. Featuring a range of powerful female voices, the program includes Ruth Crawford Seeger's ethereal Three Chants and famed British suffragette and composer Ethel Smyth's rousing March of the Women.
