Vote 100: Celebrating Women Composers marks the centenary of women gaining the vote through democracy in action. A specially commissioned new work - ‘Lead On’ - by Lucy Pankhurst, a relative of leading suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, will be performed and music by a diverse range of women composers. We are delighted that local MP Caroline Lucas will participate as a key speaker.
Soprano Polina Shepherd and special guests including vocal/instrumental group HEARD, choir Women of Note, guitarist Brian Ashworth, clarinettist Steve Dummer, flautist Rebecca Griffiths and pianists Evgenia Startseva and Yuri Paterson-Olenich plus multi-pianist ensemble the Zongora Piano Group and the Appel Trio.
