You asked for a second show, you got it.

Join Resonance Ensemble at Cerimon House for WOMEN SINGING WOMEN, a concert of audacious new music by female composers celebrating the experiences, questions, autonomy, and generally kick-ass nature of women.

On Saturday, May 18, at 3PM, Resonance Ensemble embarks on an exploration of music by women about their experiences as women, including the world premiere of a new commission by award winning composer, Melissa Dunphy.

The afternoon is dedicated to music made by women, spotlighting works by female composers and poets. Featured composers include Suzanne Vega, Carol Barnett, Lori Laitman, Ysaye Barnwell, Joan Szymko, and more.

Other notable moments will include:

  • Q & A after the concert with FitzGibbon, and other artists on the program.

  • Portland writer and Resonance Poet in Residence, S. Renee Mitchell, performing an original poem written especially for the concert.

  • Maria Karlin from Portland’s favorite Spaghetti-Western and Film Scoring band, Federale, performing an original arrangement of Suzanne Vega’s “Blood Makes Noise.”

  • Portland favorite Kira Whiting on piano.
