The dreams and ambitions of women and girls can make holes in the sky. This vision, inspired by a quote from Georgia O’Keeffe, serves as the impetus for Holes in the Sky, a concert by pianist Lara Downes and friends.
Presenting work from her Sony Masterworks album of the same title, and celebrating her newest release on this day, For Love Of You, Downes marks the 200th birthday of Clara Schumann (born on this day in 1819!) with a genre-fluid tribute to influential female composers past, present, and future, featuring music by Schumann, Florence Price, Meredith Monk, Nina Simone, Paola Prestini, Joni Mitchell, and more. Joined by harpist Bridget Kibbey, vocalist Magos Herrera, and pianist Simone Dinnerstein, Lara brings the work of brilliant, trailblazing women alive on stage.
The concert will include a discussion moderated by WQXR’s Clemency Burton-Hill.Buy tickets/get more info now
