Voices of Women

6th Nov 2019 7:00pm

A free concert of new music/songs composed by internationally recognised, Hamilton-based composer Janet Jennings. Janet has set to music, using an interesting range of instruments played by local female musicians, words of NZ women - both Maori and non-Maori - that describe women's aspirations for equality and challenges to achieving this. It features voice, marimba, piano, violin and percussion. The concert will be recorded by SOUNZ as part of the Resound project, and following the public concert, the musicians will spend two days with international recording label, Atoll Records, making a top quality recording for national and international distribution.

This project is supported by the University of Waikato Music Department.

Artists include: Te Ohorere Williams, Stephanie Acraman, Catrin Johnsson, Noelle Dannenbring, Yoshiko Tsuruta, Maia Dean Martin, Rachel Thomas, Jayne Tankersley, Maria Mo, Catrin Johnsson, Rachel Fuller, Stephanie Acraman, Katherine Austin
