Abstract (300 words maximum)

The most significant activity for a composer is to create new compositions of substance and meaning and to have them performed and heard by audiences. After taking the 2016 KSU class Music in the Holocaust, I was inspired by the suppression of Jewish and “othered” musicians and decided to write a piece dedicated to all the women who have been silenced from the ancient past to the present day. This 2017 work is a collection of songs for mezzo-soprano and piano. Each of its four movements sets the text of female poets describing their experiences as women.
