The girls tell their side of the story in this recital that pairs history’s great composers with several world premiere compositions! Many female characters in the Bible are nameless, forever hidden—fascinating characters known to us only as “Lot’s Wife” or “The Woman at the Well.” Others are infamous, like Jezebel, whose name has become a symbol for a brazen, lustful woman. Still others are both familiar and mysterious, like Eve, who glimpsed both paradise and a fallen creation, or Mary, who trembled at the angel’s words, then at the foot of her son’s cross. Major works by Hindemith, Fauré, and Handel are featured alongside new songs and cycles by Chicago composers Amos Gillespie, Adam Gustafson, Randall West, Eric Malmquist, and Randall Moore. The program will be performed four times, with varying music and performers.
