What She Said: Music of Women Poets

Listen up! The voices of women have not only been loud and strong in recent years, but have been robust for centuries, perhaps at less forceful, less assertive levels. the Pittsburgh Camerata will turn up the volume on their art, past and present, in this concert that honors the transformative power of women.

With guests:
The Pittsburgh Girls Choir, Kathryn Barnard, Artistic Director
Triple Trio –the all-girls ensemble of Mt. Lebanon High School Choirs, Ethan LaPlaca, Director

February 8, 7:30PM at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church and February 9, 3:00PM at Shadyside Presbyterian Church
